Missing all of my curious, wild, innovative, beautiful, hard-working friends on MDI like crazy today. Stumbled upon this dream scene during an off-trail walk with @peterlogue2 exactly two years ago, and a week before my mom died. That island always has what I'm looking for 💫

Headway on an experiment for @enormoustinyart's #eta22 at @nahcotta in September 🌾 Based on a roadside photo I took last October, somewhere in Bolinas, between oysters and van naps and farm stand flowers.

Watercolor and ink on bristol, from #bioconstellation, all currently available through @nahcotta. I know there are plenty of people who find bones to be eerie or dark, but I love them more than I can express. Everything about them - their colors and lines, their surface, their functions and perfect design. Whitetail deer (thanks @drhypercube 🦌!), gull, raccoon, marsupial (thanks @clarejamesartist 💕!), muskrat, and a few miscellaneous stragglers.

After a bit more fine tuning on his toes tonight, this little guy is heading to San Francisco where the wonderful Michael McConnell (@poopingrabbit) will be painting him a little buddy for #friendsthatnevermet. Cannot wait to see the finished pair, whom, along with lots of other dynamic duos, will be at @fayesvideo in September. Stay tuned! (Also, leaving the test marks, which I've never done before, because experiments are good!)

Fifteen solid minutes of this perfect downpour.

My idea of a good Saturday night. Progress for #eta22, based on a roadside photo of Salt Point State Park🌲@enormoustinyart @nahcotta

@colorbroken just discovered this amazing, dogeared sticker on the bottom of my mom's old toolbox, which I'd somehow never flipped over. She had the admission ticket for this tucked into a travelogue covering her Bay Area years, and combined, they feel an awful lot like treasure. @fresnocitycollege #fresnofolkfestival #centralcaliforniafolkmusicsociety

Sturdy little mess of grass and white campion and wild pea, between storms.

A little 3/8" tall warm up for @poopingrabbit's super sweet #friendsthatnevermet, which will be up at @fayesvideo in September! 🐿

World's craziest #enormoustinyart wall, getting crazier by the day. @enormoustinyart @nahcotta

In the spirit of #tbt, a mini-installation of #bioconstellation pieces is currently on the wall at @nahcotta (and also still available online via the link in my profile)! 🌿
