Trading In….; ‘Beauty For Ashes’
stirred by your whisper i squall,
i process too end…..
I’m not sure what kind of wood I have here, since this one was sent to me by a person out in southern California. While out walking in the desert there….and coming upon a, ‘in the past used campsite’, this was one piece of wood that was left over.
Actually I have 3 of these….and they all bear witness to the tell-tale signs of having burn marks upon them. Left-over campsite wood, weathered grey and yet out the ashes of that campsite comes a piece of beauty.
....search and rescue….salvation….redemption….’wood art’....and so from the ashes, I traded in and took hold of beauty !
I have not yet dreamed of what to do with this piece, (actually 3 pieces) but that will come as I show forth patience and grace of attitude, in the process of beginning to end.
Now after having said all the above….I just have to show forth some more beauty from around here at the house//farm, which leads me out to one of our gardens. After the long winter, it is in these images and photos that I take and save….that again my imagination takes flight. And yes, if one is wondering….the wheel-barrel is filled with one of our most famous products we grow up here….’rock tatoes’.....
....and then this one comes from behind the house in a granite crevice….
