I finished the first wheat trial and it’s received loads of interest with my FB friends. I’ll continue playing with this form by adding in a few additional stalks to the design (or going for more of a micro view by zooming in on the kernels). The work needs to cover a 2 ft x 2 ft square and it’s current rendition would leave too many loose ends and not enough connection to 3 of the 4 sides. The photos are taken on top of my light table, hence the golden background color.
I’ve been experiencing a different twist in my health this past week. I’m not normally one to take naps during the day, but my body craved it (and I was out for hours) Nerve pain has escalated into a bunch of my body parts, not just the feet and hips. The last time I experienced a similar feeling was during a shingles attack 6 years back. Ah ha! Can it really be that?! Not that it makes any difference, but at least I can understand the issue better.
Today I had to forgo the early morning trip to Eugene for the annual running/walking of the Butte to Butte. I had hopes of actually participating this year, but my body still isn’t happy. I’ll just hang at home with the dogs and enjoy the beautiful weather! Below it a photo of the running/walking group in the street where I grew up. My brother Mike(center), his wife and his two sons are there, my husband, plus niece and her boyfriend. The photo was taken by my sister. Happy 4th!

That wheat stalk is so strong, a wonderful image that will read from a long way off. Hope you are feeling a bit better!
Thanks Anna! I’m playing with multiple stalks right now and there will be one more rendition after the trio. 🙂 Now if I can get grass to look so good!
Oh no, hope you feel better soon xxx
Sparta Says, “Get those dogs waiting on you!”
wouldn’t that be nice?! 🙂
I suggested to Sparta that she practice what she preach. There’s a look she gave me!
She does bring you gifts! Too bad you don’t appreciate them like she does. 😉
Harumph! !! 😡
My energy is returning and the neurological issues are abating. Thank goodness!
That’s a relief!
Sorry you were laid up and missed the outing, I know the feeling. But your art work is going so well. Take care and we look forward to your next design. Karen
