"Water Play" Amid Devastation
Twenty-three Consecutive Days of Rain in WNC

As I traveled from Henderson County to Tryon, NC in Polk County fallen trees, mud slides and blocked roads diverted me through South Carolina where I finally delivered, "Water Play" and "Snake Lady" to the Tryon "Sculptors and Painters" Art Gallery on Trade Street.

A week later, a tv anchor and another journalist were killed as they traveled one of the roads I'd driven on! Having lived through the September 11th Attacks, and photographed the ruins, going through this debris reminded me of how fragile our earth is and how quickly it's erupting!
