So I am drawing every fish that I keep this year to show my environmental impact on the mississippi river, in at least how many fish one person takes from the river. The fish are starting to add up and I think look interesting. I draw because I want to have a persnonal relationship with the world. If I would just take pictures I wouldn't be sitting there asking questions. When I ask questions I learn and care. When I care it gives my life meaning. When I have a relationship that is emotive and meaningful with something I think I am likely not wanting to destroy or hurt that relationship. So I paint and draw nature. So I care so deeply.
And yes I did eat the sheepshead
I am so grateful to the people that suport me and make me able to live a life that I want to in so many ways.
I have been busy but have a few new images to come.
This image is of the fog the evening of the solstice in chipmunk ridge road. I like when the paintings push abstaction and become much more emotional.
