For a handful of years before I actually started writing songs, I painted fine art paintings. Well, this was a point in time when I was searching for my voice. Along the way, I created a variety of paintings that I enjoyed. These paintings are featured in my book which offers a selection of photography and paintings by yours truly, Unwinding Paths.
This book is a sort of visual companion book to my book of poems and songs, Heart's Eye. It really feature a variety of places and moments that have meant a lot to me over the years, ranging from my trips to Long Island to France and Machu Picchu.
Recently, while taking a hike, I found myself wanting to take a picture of some natural scenery. Being equipped only with a cell phone camera, albeit a good one, still the beauty of some of the delicate plants around me could not adequately be captured. So I found myself remembering something my dad told me to the effect that the best camera is my eyes.
