Seed for New Work
Top left is a drawing of a photograph of a microscopic view of a poppy seed. I didn't count it because it's just copied from an internet photo. Below that on the left side are some seed containers from my garden that I enjoyed for lunch today, along with a stem of lavender from the herb bed. On the right, another seed-like object, half a bird's egg that I found in the woods this evening, glowing pale in the near dark. Under the egg is a dessicated stem of Indian Pipe, left from last summer, with a few seeds inside its ovary. Then there is the bride, a sketch done with carving knives on a rubber plate. And in front of her some abstracted seed forms based on the luffa and poppy seeds from yesterday.
