I fell in love with the roots of this tree. I found them luscious, voluptuous. I think a painting may come from this. As for the universe's messages, I had a pounding headache and it was difficult to hear. You can't force these things, I know. But on my way home, I felt something profound, and it was exactly what I needed.
coffee paper I made a while back? Well, when I got home from my walk, I decided that right then was the time to do something with it.
I've always told my husband I want to live in a fairy house. Something natural and magical and a little lopsided and nestled in the woods. With house hunting on my mind, I naturally started drawing one of these. J. suggested I make it an actual fairy house, so I added in objects from one of my ritual altars-- a feather and acorns.
While I love the outcome, I don't know if I love this enough for it to be a series of sorts. I'm going to experiment differently with the remaining coffee paper.
Husband and I have been making linocuts for a super-special-sorta-secret project. I've been free handing my designs, which has been incredibly fun, but I guess I've been a little enthusiastic with my carvings. We're using some nice woodcarving tools, which, I've found, when you slip in the wrong direction, are really effective at carving human flesh. I'm just shocked I didn't get blood all over it. Anyhow, I just have a little more detailing to go, but I'm really excited to see the print on this one.
And lastly, a little hello from my grandmother, who is doing really well since her knee surgery! Just after this photo, she hopped onto a swing and had a go. Photo by my awesome mother at a lovely church in West Palm Beach.
Husband and I have a sleepover party planned tonight, which means serious vegging out over a TV-show marathon. I know I live in the city, but these are the perfect Friday night plans for me.
Hope you all lovelies have a wonderful weekend.
