This work is part of a year-long project on bodies of water in the western United States. Lakes, rivers, reservoirs and dams are presented in large ink wash drawings, sometimes bound into books. These drawings are intended to provoke thought on the topics of beauty, nature, conservation, water management and mismanagement. The book format alludes to ideas of study, collection, and categorization of information.
