|Rupture K Howell 2011 Pastel on Paper 14 cm x 21 cm|
I've been painting this fallen tree quite regularly, it's constantly changing. But today, it was bursting apart in the sun. We've had some spectacular autumn days; and the studio space is getting messy with experiments and work underway. So... flee!
Today, there were deer. A pair watched me watch the tree. Emboldened by the sunshine and the quiet, they stood about for ages. I might've been beneath their notice, but their indifferent company was enjoyable.
