a few new small pieces (3.5" x 3.5") that were shipped off to the Naked Gallery this week. they were mostly inspired by kentucky happenings. cone flowers and cabins and almost drowning in rain. but in a good way.
after having a garden vegetable dinner with my parents tonight i drove the forty minutes back at dusk with the windows down. the heat of the day was gone but it left a haze that made the late light pink and dense like cotton pressing in. the kudzu has grown so thick along the sides of the road you can part it with your hands like a heavy, velvet stage curtain. lilli in the backseat earnestly singing along to r.e.m., feed me banks of light and hang your hairshirt on the lowest rung
it's a beautiful life.
