Here is another tree friend from my walk.
I am very behind on my posting but I want the 365 community to know I have been viewing and enjoying the pictures and hope I am still a part of! My friends the trees are enjoying their momentary fame.
So today was the first day of 3d Design Class. These students have never made anything three dimensional; all their art experience is drawing and painting. I tasked them with bringing in things from home and/or using what they found in the classroom and experimenting with what it was like to make three dimensional drawings; to attach materials together to make something that might stand up or take up space.. They were to have either Line, Plane, or Volume be dominant
So as Jim always says, some days there is only one photo on the camera roll and today it was this one, orchestrated by me, taken by someone else; it was a Good Morning! to my daughter, who sent me a BitStrip of herself.
I was invited to the Exchange Place in Kingsport to do a presentation of my work. I had never been there and the seventeenth century log cabin construction was so beautiful. The old wood and the chinking are incredible.
Our dear dear friends gave us these beautiful jars of vegetables from their garden, each with a beautifully tied Bow, for our Anniversary Present.
It deserved a photo.
The hassock is waiting to be resurrected it is quite old. It is an object of memory. The hassock and the canned goods on the hearth together all represent family
I had to commemorate this day. I began this piece in Summer of 2012 just before my father passed away. It was to be for him. It has taken me three years to finish. It has been a block in my work and now that it is finished I am able to move on. I am very pleased with the outcome.
My brother’s wise advice is that the one photo you take might be the only one….this was out through the wind shield, and the first sunny day in a week. Now you all can ride down the Tennessee Highway with me.
This is my new friend the beech tree. I am behind in uploading my photos…school started this week! I try to walk at least 6 days a week and found this on my walk on Jan 16, the day I posted the bark photo.
