A Few Things, Mostly in 3 Parts...


Part One:
*i've been watching it open, day by day, ever since we brought it down from the garden. one could say, i'm delighted with the petals and that tiny line of pink.*

Part Two:
*one vintage dress, one favorite pair of blue jeans, and just enough wind so the edges of the fabric ruffle and twist and curl*.

Part Three:
*i dragged a few linoleum blocks from the studio cabinet and continued working on the postcard project which resulted in this little series here... lino prints, embroidery thread, water-soluble pencils, and a line of poetry or two. still keeping to the theme of a big bird, a little house, and medium-sized girl named, clover.*
