I created this embroidered book in early 1999, inspired by Philippians 4:11, in relation to decades of unidentified health problems. Upon completing “Acceptance”, a possible diagnosis appeared.
I created the aspen drawings on which the contour line images are based, on July 8, 1991, en plein air, on Grand Mesa, near Land’s End, in western Colorado.
