Don DuMont
"Gentle Gestures"

I have spent a great deal of time in the outdoors; some of my favorite areas are any body of water, rivers, marshes, flooded bottomlands/timber, and estuaries.
These are homes to many of my favorite birds; egrets, herons, rails, and stilts.
Making a yearly trip to Horn Island in the Gulf of Mexico where I camp along side one of the larger lagoons; this gives me prime viewing of many long legged wader and shore birds. While witnessing their charming antics as they strut or stalk, I see pure simple lines and form. This batch of new work is an abstraction of such; perhaps you could call them hybrids of simple curved lines.
Gentle Gestures.
