“The Naturalist’s Day”, 2004, was commissioned by 4culture and the Port of Seattle for the new South Terminal at SeaTac International Airport. It was fabricated in Spilimbergo, Italy by Travisanutto Mosaics, overseen and installed by Stephen Miotto. The artwork was done in the island studio and was meant to express the spirit of that environment.

"More painter than public artist, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with Stephen Miotto in the translation of painting to architectural scale, glass mosaic. For me there is an affinity between the two mediums. The quality of painterliness and nuance may be achieved in mosaic with the range of colored tesserae in the hands of Stephen Miotto, a master mosaicist. A spirit of idiosyncrasy may be captured."
