When I was in Italy, I was drawn most to the pre-Renaissance mosaics and frescoes, and the way that hand gestures say so much. This is also true, of course, in other cultures, bringing to mind Buddhist mudras (teaching gestures associated with Buddhism) in particular. So I have embarked on a series of hand paintings, based on art historical references. I am also collecting photographs of the hands of friends doing the things they love to do best, so if you would like to send me a photograph of your hands, I would love to add them to my collection. I am planning to do 100 of these images, so your hands may indeed be included.
