Fall 2001
by Ricky Jones, Winner of
Dear Habermas Award Outstanding Use of a New Medium in Expression

"I just wanted to send you this picture that I drew. You really inspired me to use art as therapy this past semester, and I wanted to show you what I drew. I call it Fall 2001. It symbolizes how chaotic the latter half of 2001 was, but at the same time it displays the notion of beauty amongst the chaos. I don't think this is a masterpiece, but I am very proud of it. It is the first piece of art that I created that I feel is really art. I was not trying to go for anything specific, I just started with the Triangle in the upper area of the picture, and kept going.

"I didn't use any of the fancy paints that you have (I can't afford them), but I used markers, color pencils, crayons, and felt pens. I hope you like it. If you can find some time, will you give me some feedback on it?"

On Saturday, January 26, 2002, jeanne responded:

Ricky, It was with great pleasure that I moved Georg Baselitz to the Art section this morning, and gave Fall 2001 our place of honor for the this week's issue. I fuss a lot about being our only tech, but at a time like this, I am delighted to have control of our issues for instant changes.

You sent that painting on January 16, and it took me ten days to get around to downloading it. I have no explanation for the delay, except that somehow this morning seems like this was meant to happen this way. Thank you for sharing your art with us.

love and peace, jeanne
