entanglement of weeds
Next in the mammal series are Rabbits!
This is an in-process photo.
I basically have the “skeletal” work complete and now working on the details.
The goal is to capture the elegance and wildness of nature and have the entanglement of wildflowers radiating into the rabbits - embodying a sense of awe and empowerment. I was initially inspired by the wildflowers of spring. Since then, I have been more observant in my walks in the woods and have gained more understanding of why some are intimated by the dark entanglement of wild plants…it can be scary. What is in there? Bugs for sure. Maybe some spiders, ticks, snakes ...yup. Plus turtles, salamanders, and mammals sheltering their babies...such as baby bunnies.
Currently, we (my husband is an awesome support) are prepping for the Ned Smith Nature & Arts Festival on Saturday, July 30th. Now, realizing that I have stowed away a lot of art! He is helping me frame while I prep and inventory. So not much creating lately - yet is part of the artist’s journey. We hope that you can visit the Festival ~ which is free with lots to see and do for all ages at ... 176 Water Company Rd., Millersburg, PA 17061
