Week Three. March 2015.

LOOK:


QUESTION:
Can I see the structure of the stream within the distracting movement of the water?

Stop in if you get a chance.


FIELD NOTES:
The seasons clicked over one notch while I was painting last weekend. On Saturday I worked in the profound silence of Winter's woods. Then on Sunday I could barely hear myself think as hundreds of frogs floated in a vernal pool behind me loudly and rhythmically croaking their spring mating call.
