Magazine articles about the Santa Fe Institute sometimes show the clear glass walls where formulas and diagrams can be written during discussions. In my garden in Santa Fe I sometimes see the “horny toad” (actually a lizard) who lives under my pinon tree.  I wanted to contrast this creature from the Pleistocene era with SFI, a relatively recent development in the same neighborhood.  I have no idea what this particular formula is about.

Years before I thought of myself as an artist, I witnessed this scene. I quickly captured it in my travel diary. Recently I came across that page and decided to capture it in paint.
