Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The four postcards are small studies that return to subjects often visited in R&F Mo's works- old folk and fairy tales - such as Robinson Crusoe, cowboys (some lonely other's not), bears that dance with people (not for people), and the comfort of a small safe house - perhaps even a rescue hut out in the wilds that can provide food and shelter for lost woanderers ( spelt with both an 'a' and and'o' to indicate that the wondering of the mind is tied to the wandering of the body).
