I remember when my father decided to start a church, sitting in the livingroom with him looking in Webster's New International Dictionary, Second Edition, and looking up various icons of the worlds religions.

I grew up with the art of Leonard Diamond. He once gave me a lesson in which he had me draw an egg balanced on an overturned styrofoam cup set on a plain white piece of paper.

After seeing Leonard for the last time before he died of cancer, I got up at midnight with this image in my head....

This work took me three years to finish. It is also the first time I have recorded the intermediate images of a work in progress. I have found that people react to it strongly in many directions.
