IN SEARCH OF MEANING
News and Happenings
In early August I presented to the Stanford Linear Accelerator four limited edition giclee prints. These prints will hang permanently at Stanford University.
"They're gorgeous; absolutely lovely," said SLAC Director Jonathan Dorfan of the paintings. "And we are very appreciative."
In Search of Meaning # 1 is featured on the cover of Constituents of Matter (Wick Poetry First Book Series) by Anna Leahy.
