'they know not what they do' has to do with my feelings about the execution of troy davis... i worked on it for a couple of nights - there's a lot of stuff covered up on the page, but in the end it seemed to capture my feelings just about perfectly...
my main thing lately hast not been painting, though! it's getting out in the woods to visit the trees (and everything!) before the rain and cold weather get here...
green shrine tree #1, new heart rock
green shrine tree #2 - old heart rock, tidied up!
this is an old 'flag' at green shrine tree #1... i'm showing it because i've been showing how these drawings done with caran d'ache crayons and pigma micron pens (on muslin) are holding up. i'm beginning to lose count now, but i think this one is going into its fourth winter. i'm amazed at the amount of color left!
a flag from this summer - with beeswax... the new version of tree flags, lol
this is me today, stitching some sari silk and rhinestones to muslin. after i tied it to a branch i looked down, and there was
a perfect piece of charcoal...

“The difficulty of always feeling that you ought to be doing something is that you tend to undervalue the times when you’re apparently doing nothing, and those are very important times.”
