How can we value an experience as it is presented and also be thoughtful about progressing beyond it? “Natural Conclusions” is a show of unexpected collaboration and second chances.

It really startled me, and then I started realizing that those exciting one on one encounters with wildlife at and in the sea were becoming far less frequent, that everyday a little more was lost. I got the idea that if I could capture those encounters using color in a way that…
