Little Adobe Garden Shed
Since the hut is made of local clay, I used some of my local clay paints to do all of these paintings. The painting above on the right is of a series of long greenhouses or hoop houses that are almost joined end to end. Standing at one entrance you can see all the way through three houses into a shady grove of trees at the very far end. The greenish paint in that one is also from around here: ground up olivine rocks that Jacob and I found, several years ago when we used to collect clay and make paint together, down by the river at the confluence with Christian Creek. The black is from paint that Jacob made out of tar from a parking lot. The white is from a chalky clay that Maya and I found up on Jones Mountain last year.
