About This Artwork: I hemmed and hawed over this piece for a long time. What began as something quite simple became this - which does not appear complex, but here it is, like a joust with my own self. I almost called it The Knight, but wound up taking a line from the song, B-52 that I wrote in the early 1990s and finally recorded some years after.
