Desert Flight  began with a piece of driftwood shaped like a bird in flight.  As I sketched and studied it, I thought of the 93-year-old woman who gave me this driftwood from her collection of weathered bones, shells, and rocks.  As she approached death, she repeatedly wrote of the spirit preparing for flight.
