'simplify,

mary jane dodd

simplify.' 
~ henry david thoreau

sometimes in the simplest things we are most challenged and most rewarded... 

during the course of this past week, i tried something new... 


making leaves...

this experiment, while novel to me, felt anything but... instead it was as if they had been there all along... the techniques i had been applying elsewhere finding their true purpose in these types of pieces...

is through a forest wilderness.'

It's good for the soul, isn't it, when all of the pieces come togther into what you are making. Beautiful.

What would be more perfect. The leaves that you were meant to make clinging to the never ending circle. More art from your heart.
