At the Edisto River in SC

At the Edisto River a few days ago. I was scouting out some new spots for other site-specific installations. The natural line up of these cypress knees in addition to the way they were silhouetted captured my attention. 

I also stopped by to visit the moss ring I built a month or so back. Happy to see the moss is thriving. The images I took here before are quite contrasty with strong shadows cutting across the frame (see Moss Ring 1 and 2  under  Communions on the web site ). The softer light depicted here is very appealing, so I may have to do another performance at this site utilizing this lighting.



Spring in Virginia

Working on a new piece in Virginia - I am creating mud lines on some rocks in the mountains. The dirt at the rock site is not the color I want so I have to carry  iron rich dirt from the creek area below to make my dirt dauber lines. I am expecting this piece to take at least two days to finish. You can look for the final image under “Work/ Communions” on my site. 

Working on this series, Communions often feels more like play than work. Bringing each image to fruition requires patience, a 2-3 day commitment, and manual labor, but the whole process is very enjoyable. 

The pictured arrowhead was found when I went to the creek to wash up. I bent down in the creek and there it was. A gift.
