In His Mind

Lithograph, 9 x 7"

In his mind
the flowing tree
is still flowing

I had been thinking about Mary Powers, the printmaker Paul Muldoon wrote about in his poem, Incantata. Diagnosed with breast cancer, she refused medical intervention and died. I wrote the poem one morning about the locust tree outside my bedroom window and as I dated the poem in my journal, realized that it was Mary's birthday. I decided to do an image to go along with the poem and went downstairs and grained a stone.
