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!
