buoy: a way finding device.  buoys have been a constant in my life.  growing up in a new england town filled with sea faring folks buoys were something that i was familiar with early in life and they have grown to become a constant in the images i make.  by definition a buoy is called ‘ a way finding device ‘  and i can hear my dear friend and mentor Harris Barron’s voice each time i read his sign off… ‘stay buoyant’  keeing these words in mind as we all tread the seas of life.   these colorful oddly shaped markers remind me that it takes effort to stay afloat but that there are buoys in life to keep us finding our way.
