I am pleased to announce that my painting, "River of Tears," has been published in the new book Addiction and Art from Johns Hopkins University Press. My painting was an expression of emotion about my father's struggles with alcoholism.

Addiction accounts for one of every five deaths in the United States. This book puts a human face on addiction through the creative work of individuals who have been touched by it. A panel of addiction scientists, artists, and art professionals selected the 61 pieces in the book from more than 1,000 submissions. Each artwork is accompanied by a statement from the artist.

The book may be ordered at www.press.jhu.edu. When you get there, click on "Books." Be warned, Addiction and Art is not for the faint of heart.
