‘Personal P’ is an altered book I began in 2009, 9.25 x 6 x 1", 250 pages. I worked with India ink, gouache and sandpaper. After my brother died, September 10, 2015, I found solace in the mark making, anew. The meditative quality of a simple repeated line was a grounding way to contemplate his life and death. I quickly filled and completed the book by May of 2016.
