2016 in photos from my phone

Someone I know posted an album of photos from their phone on Facebook to sum up the year.  Since I don’t seem to have much to say lately, and I hate Facebook, I thought I’d do that here.  So here are some things that happened last year:

I finished cleaning out the attic.

The morning light in my studio is really dramatic.

I drew a lot of bugs.

I helped a friend build a labyrinth.

This little guy and his or her sibling hatched and fledged on my porch while I was waiting for the contractors to reinstall the screens.

I took some of my girls out to get them professionally photographed.

I made a bunch of plaster casts of other people, and started working on making sculptures from those.

I didn’t just draw bugs.  I photographed them too.

I went for a lot of walks. This photo is heavily filtered, which is the only way to convey how magical my neighbors’ pasture looked that morning.

I made a lot of beaded leaves for a sculpture I’m still working on.

My poor cat had to have major dental surgery. It was rough.

She recovered well, though, and now she makes this face when she wants something. She never used to sneer like that when she had teeth.

By late October, the labyrinth looked like this:

And Hannah found this peace sign in one of the chunks of sumac that mark the perimeter:

Seen in a public restroom in Manchester, NH:

On Thanksgiving, the labyrinth looked like this:

Just before my last open studio, I drew this picture of Kali and hung it up in the studio. I hoped people would write on it.

Nobody wrote on Kali, though, because they were too busy getting orange makeup smeared on their faces and putting on a Trump wig and getting photographed by my friend Julie (an advanced Inner Beauty Treatment that she calls “the trumpover.”)

That’s okay.  Kali will still be there next time.
