Landscapes are wonderful aesthetic vistas.  Since I have become a "person with a mobility disability," I look at the world in a more immediate way.  I need to look at the ground I roll or walk on to know where to place a quad cane, walker or move a wheelchair.  I need to be aware of slippery surfaces and cracks, bumps and curbs.  Lo and Behold! I have discovered very interesting "groundscapes."  There are endless patterns and textures and infinite inspiration.  I call these "Groundscapes."
 
The first one is 30"x 28" and the second is 30"x24". The rest are 16"x 20" and explore the groundscape of our world.  I hope they make you notice things when you are standing, walking, rolling, or sitting and connected to our ground - our earth.
