I saw 'Footprints' at Prairie Fest amidst gracious greenery and blooming blue bonnets. Sweet justice for our the silent sweet grass. Tammy's cunning words build as we become faced with our disposable over indulgence. Lori's fluid motion continues to call us to the shape of our foot and asks how deep is your print? Thanks so much for your artistic vision. Prairie Fest was a great event full of forward thinking, peaceful people!
