2014 First Place
The images, Girl in the Moon, Talisman, Rancho and Moon River, are from the Mythos series which is
inspired by my childhood in deep South Texas, and one that held more than the usual share of
mystery. My mind, always busy with imaginings, was also trying to see past the veil of obscurity that
was my normal. Not knowing the people I came from, or how I came to be where I was, led to a
heightened sense of wonder. This wonder imbued most everything; as long as I can remember, it has
been entwined with a sense of hope and possibility. !
Mythos developed from these early queries, of trying to see the unseeable and to know the
unknowable - longings that we all share in some way or another. While it is my own tale, it is a token
of the shared mystery that binds us together. !!
