hodgepodge noun
hodge·podge | \ ˈhäj-ˌpäj \
: a heterogeneous mixture : JUMBLE

Some define "hodgepodge" as a confused mixture. Ignore that and go with the definition above "a heterogeneous (or diverse) mixture." As one is exposed to more art and is receptive to expanding beyond one's preconceived notions or a tight focus, ones aesthetic evolves and lets art from one period or genre overlap with another—either in complement or contrast.

Over the last twenty-plus years, my primary focus on early treen has expanded to where it is hard to see the connections between a-to-z. However, if one looks at a-to-b, b-to-c, c-to-d etcetera the connections and overlaps make sense—like an evolving an expanding Venn diagram.

This is not to say there is not a focus or discipline—there very much is! The catalog herein has a diverse mix for sure—but everything was deliberately chosen and vetted for the integrity of vision, craftsmanship, surface, and condition. Enjoy!
