Three Drawings but Four Things
Below Jesse on the left is a not-drawing (and hence un-numbered) but still an interesting artifact from the day: this evening my journal group came over here to make watercolor paints from clay they had all gathered from around their neighborhoods. This swatch is a sample of Michelle's Wyatt Brown. It's smooth and perfectly creamy.
On the right under the other Jesse is a little amulet that I found while cleaning out the back of my car. It was under the rug, and I have no idea who left it there. Very few people ride in the back of my VW except for my granddaughter Maya. I did carry a friend's backpack around for a couple of days last week as she had left it at my house and I needed to give it to her. But she said she didn't have such an object. I haven't checked with Maya yet. I hope it's NOT Maya's because I would love to think it has come to me and is now mine. It's made of bronze-looking metal and has intricate relief designs all around an eye. The iris of the eye is a glittering blue stone. To ward off the evil eye? It has a hole pierced in the top, so it may have come off of an earring. Anybody out there recognize this?
