The sublimely beautiful wing shape of a Spitfire fuses with the English garden steps of my mother’s youth. The layers of foliage and stone wall mimic the camouflage patterns of RAF aircraft during my mother’s airforce days. The steps rise up to another level and the garden birdbath of my childhood in Red Deer, ten thousand miles and a sanctuary of years later.
