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.
