It's a beautiful, clear, low humidity day which I love. I made a few more fabric prints and those are drying, but pictured below is the large one on paper I made yesterday. This is 18 x 24 inches, grape leaves and Japanese maple. Both of those botanicals seem really... Continue reading

It was a busy day. I woke early to the hooting owl(s) again and then the birdsong. Got out of bed at a reasonably decent time and was on the go (albeit at home) all day. Work in the garden, printing, sensitizing material, walking Avery...haven't had a lot of down... Continue reading

It's been warm and humid today. Apparently there's the potential for thunderstorms this evening. I'm trying to be chill about it, but I gotta tell ya...I'm feeling a little triggered by the thought. But, it is what it is and it's rather lovely out right now. Those big, towering clouds... Continue reading

I woke early to the sound owls (I love that!) and really didn't go back to sleep. I think they were hooting somewhere around 4:45 or 5 am, before the dawn chorus of all the other bird life. It was good because it meant getting ahead on some things for... Continue reading

It was quite the day at the river this Sunday. The James is at flood stage. All the kayakers were having a blast. Walking in the sunshine felt wonderful. The rest of the day was spent in the garden. Lots done...so much more to do! 136@59 Continue reading

Today was a better day. I was able to gradually wrap my head around the notion that water seeping into my lower level (partially below grade basement) because of very unusually heavy rainfall and ground saturation, is not a thing to lose one's mind over. I don't know...my house is... Continue reading

It's been a very challenging day. Sleep issues the past few nights, torrential rains yesterday and through the night, things have come up that are beyond my experience dealing with alone. That's that hard part...dealing with stuff alone. It's hard to know what I need to know when a situation... Continue reading

Spring is quickly moving into summer. Air scented with honeysuckle, becoming overtaken by the heavy green redolence of warmer months. Everything is saturated right now...the air, the soil, the plants. Drenching showers come and go and come again. 134@59 Continue reading

The weather has been wet and soggy...oh so soggy. Art making efforts today I deem...mediocre bordering on rather awful. I've begun to view the minor disasters as teachable moments (I don't need to rehash that point as I believe I've mentioned it numerous times!). This seems to be a necessity... Continue reading

It was a busy day today...what with long walkies down to the river, printing, sewing, prepping materials for more printing. It's been very warm and humid after quite an energetic thunderstorm last night. There was definitely some wind damage in the neighborhood. Avery and I were both thankful after it... Continue reading

I set my Zero69 to the 6x9 frame before loading it with film last week. My intention had been to make some conceptual images in the house, but that never happened before my trip up to DC. Instead, there are wide pinholes of Alexandria National Cemetery, the cafe in the... Continue reading

I am back from a whirlwind trip up to DC. Oh boy, what a marvelously inspiring and joyful time! The Sally Mann exhibit at the National Gallery was awesome! The breadth of her work and dedication to all her processes is amazing. I really love her family photos prints and... Continue reading

Good morning (or whatever time of day you're reading this)!! Just a quick check in before I hit the road for D.C. area. I'm going to see the Sally Mann exhibit at the National Gallery and then David Byrne in concert. It'll be a fun day, with the night spent... Continue reading

The morning after the evening of the storm...it's quite magickal here at Baba Yaga's house. But then, there is magick everywhere if you adjust your vision to see it. Heading off to monitor the studio for a couple hours and then various and sundry errands and tasks the rest of... Continue reading

It was very warm today. Avery and I had our walk in the afternoon, at which point she took a little dip in the river. Back home now and it's gotten very dark. A storm is moving in. Both of us are apprehensive. Wind is kicking up...the forecast mentioned hail...oh... Continue reading

More photos of the garden. It's really coming along now...especially all the buckwheat that has finally sprouted and has to be controlled around the new plants. No worries...I love the vibrance. And today...today...it was like Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom out there!! I had just driven in from getting my... Continue reading

My mood is...off. I'm worried about a few things...and feeling sort of like a loser in many respects. Now, I know the loser thing isn't true but for various reasons that's my default position, especially when I'm in the midst of unsettledness. It'll pass...everything does, right? On the bright side,... Continue reading

The morning is overcast. Will there be rain later? Maybe. It's quiet. I make my tea. Every morning I make my tea. The birds sing outside. I watched What Remains last night...a documentary about Sally Mann. It's an old one, relatively, from the mid 2000's. Still, I will watch films... Continue reading

I miss weekends with family...with a partner. It seems more than any other time during the week, this is when I recognize my losses. So, I focus on what's now, what gives me joy, those things for which I'm grateful. I have a safe and comfortable home, a garden to... Continue reading

Only a few words of intro for this blog post. I wanted to document the house with its new paint job, and the tidy yard I spent a few hours on this afternoon. The morning was encaustic class, then home, had some lunch and then out in the yard. It... Continue reading

It's another gorgeous morning. The painters are back (second day in a row....they were here for about ten hours yesterday!). The house is getting to look rather spiffy. I'm trying to figure out what's on my agenda for the day. There are a couple errands I need to run, one... Continue reading

What an absolutely gorgeous beginning to the month of May. It's been clear and warm, with low humidity. Avery and I had a really good walk by the river, but before that I started on some wet cyanotype pieces. In addition to the wet cyanotypes, I loaded my Zero with... Continue reading
