Statement: “Delights of the Soil is inspired by the patterns of wildflowers emerging from the sandy soil of the desert. Every year I spread a wide variety of native wildflower seeds on the first Tuesday in November, Election Day. Wildflowers are typically seeded many months before they appear in the springtime. I choose that specific day as a wish for hope and change in our environment and society. Wildflowers are hearty and strong; they need little care and are made stronger by weathering the winter storms and rough ground. In the early spring, they emerge as a pattern of tiny leaves and color changes in the surface of the new soil. They give me hope for a splendid spring and a more decent, humane society.”
