This piece is from the Journeys, States & Locations show way back at Joel Beck & Jessica Murray's Salon 75 on Roebling. This was the first showing of my work which blended murky pop colored liquids and surreal light sources, with landscapes, portraits and psychologically loaded objects. #1 of 5, cibachrome mounted to plexiglass. This piece was nearly adopted twice...after considerable time wasted. If any artist on FAAN wants the names of two ladies of retarded social development who you may want to avoid as adptors, let me know.

The adopter, Caroline Cooper, writes:
I have watched David's work come on to this site and have always admired the depth of his pieces. When this piece came up for adoption it was love at first site. Before I saw the moose heads I saw what reminded me of the seaweed I used to play with at the beach. My grandfather and I used to wade through the waist high water and I would gather the sheets of the slippery stuff. As the only girl of all of the grandchildren I cherished any time I could spend with him. It brings back wonderful memories for me. At the top of the horns there are what look like bubbles coming to the surface.
Now RAIN lives my home.
When I picked up the piece at David's apartment it was wrapped. When I opened it at home it just took my breath away. A photograph doesn't do it justice My 11 year old son was mesmerized. It has a translucent almost gel like quality-but it is glass---The colors are so rich and deep. The moose seem to have met in the early morning mist. I have moved them from room to room and they have finally found their home in my living room. I am in love and I am forever grateful to David and his beautiful spirit.

It was a pleasure to meet Caroline when she popped in to pick up RAIN.
She has sent two subsequent emails of beautiful appreciation since receiving it. There's nothing like receiving glowing thanx from someone who relishes a piece of your work in their home.I'm especially pleased that RAIN
provides her young son with visual pleasure and provocation in regards to animals.
