Better Than the News

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.
