The inception of Waterways was rather abstract in that I wanted to feature harmonies built around the digits of the decimals made from 7 (1/7, 2/7, etc.). Many of the harmonies that resulted projected a sense of calm, which led my thoughts toward images that help me feel calm, particularly water in all of its many forms. This resulted in the more programmatic notion of waterways and locations where water is plentiful. Of all the places in the United States with abundant water the Northwest, especially western Washington and Oregon, is my favorite. This piece aims to inspire in the mind images of the ocean, ferry rides, rivers and streams, forests, and rain.
