I’ts been about three weeks since I returned from Ireland. The jet lag has finally worn off and I’m getting back into work mode. No teaching until fall so I really have no excuses. I’m including two pieces that are still in progress. The first is my attempt to capture the glorious spring gentians and early purple orchids that were intermingling all throughout the Burren. It was a truly amazing sight that I won’t ever be able to do justice. But I’ll try! It still needs something, currently trying to figure out what that is.
The second is a piece in graphite. I have started collecting objects from different locations, I brought back quite a lot from my recent trip. I would eventually like to create pieces that say something about the places I’ve traveled to through the objects I’ve found. Not an original concept by any stretch but one that really interests me now. Anyway, this one is a collection of things from Doug and Dana’s backyard. Again, still refining it. And a lot more to come I hope . . .
