Vocabulary of Near is a small graphite, charcoal, conte, and shellac drawing measuring 33 in. H x 27 3/4″W.  A partner piece to the much larger painting, I was finding a place in my home within the fields of paper and canvas, a holding spot for my daughter before she left for college.  In this sense, it was a piece about change and loss, a mourning, but also a held moment of beauty and a door opening for possibility.
