I began this series in 2012. Other commitments intervened, and I returned to this theme in 2017. On flights through California I became fascinated with the striking patterns of light and shadow created by the ubiquitous orchards below. These drawings are a contemplation on the permanence and evanescence of such sights. Healthy, watered and tended orchards in contrast with abandoned and bulldozed orchards giving way to ‘progress,” i.e. malls, industrial parks and housing developments.
