Down on the farm the mama pigs are pregnant again and eating peacefully in the grassy field where they live. Alongside the pig pasture milkweeds are blooming, and while I was drawing a flower, a female monarch fluttered down and stayed drinking nectar for as long as I needed to draw her.
At the other end of the pasture another sow was grazing, and at my feet were a number of totem-like rocks.
Here are a bird and two people. I brought four of them home, and after I drew them I used a little watercolor to tease out their features. I'll bring them back tomorrow and the rain that we get most evenings will wash them clean.
