portrait of the artist as plant

Yesterday Audrey and I sat out on the deck all day in the 25+ degree breeze-less sunshine in bathing suits and did our best impressions of plants. For inspiration, we brought all our plants outside for a field trip. They perked right up, little leaves reaching for the sun. I made a new friend from the garden and generally basked in a sense of universal love and well being.

In other news, I recently did a block printing class at The Anna Templeton Centre with artist Morgaine Parnham, a textile artist working at the Quidi Vidi Village Plantation Craft Incubator.

Today is grey but my hopes are high for an evening of happy making. Audrey and I have been discussing the imminent building of raised beds for the garden and planting of seeds.

Today the skies are heavy and I am light with possibility.
