I've been feeling like I've been lost in the woods lately with the lack of time to be able to spend in my studio. I made some time this weekend amid household and farm preparation for the coming storm to spend about an hour alone, working in my studio. Time spent becoming familiar with my new etching press and a drypoint I started a few months ago.
I plan to pull an edition in the next week and will post some photos when I get it finished!

I read something about a month ago (and it has stuck with me) that was meant to be uplifting.
It made me so sad.
A blogger was telling how positive and wonderful her life was. (sounds great, right?)
She told how happy she was. (what's wrong with that?)
She went on to explain why it was.
Filters out everything except what is internal. What she wants. What she feels, desires, enjoys...
She filters out negative people. (ok, so that's not so bad.)
She avoids taking the time to notice bad things. (hmmm...)
She avoids others peoples pain, disappointment, and problems.
And she is happy.
That makes me sad.
It makes me sad that because she doesn't take notice of other people's pain she can't be a part of bringing them joy.
It makes me sad that because she only knows her own pain, and can't recognize it's paleness, she will never truly experience her own joy.
Her heart will never truly have the beauty of scars from understanding the pain of others.
She will never have the beauty that comes from pain.

I made several monotypes in this vein and may continue with more soon.

I would love any information on this first photo. I have scoured the internet to no avail! HA!
This striking smokestack/chimney sits about 15 feet to the West of Hwy 61 North of Vicksburg, South of Redwood, in an area noted on the map as Blakely, Mississippi.
Less than 15 feet to the West of the smokestack is a railroad that apparently belongs to the Vicksburg Southern Railroad Co.
There are no Historical markers, or any other indications of what this might have been. It is the only structure there.
Also in our ramblings included a trip to Windsor Ruins.
I love this place. It is absolutely striking.
I hope you enjoy my photos.
