Double Grow




I've got 2 for grow this week. The first is a new piece, a winding river making it's way through an autumn forest. A forest for me is a continual reminder of birth, growth, death and rebirth. Every fall the leaves die and grow new again in spring. But in dying, they continue to grow, to change. In fact their growth is most extreme in their last stage of life, when the color is most radiant... Plus I'm really into drawing owls lately!

The second is an old picture I titled the tree of life. Many things grow on it and come from it. Also, for those interested, I've just started my own "Etsy" shop! Right now I have 8x10 prints and a set of Christmas cards up there, but I intend to list more items this week. Check it out here (www.WoodyMart.etsy.com).

I'm a huge fan of folk art, but that top piece made me lean forward and say,"oooh.." Lovely, lovely colors and fantastic composition. That owl is a great touch.

Please!

Send an email to the Brazil embassj in your country and report the injustice that the brazilian courts are making with this girl.
