I've been working again. Three new pieces in the gallery today:
(top) Ruby Beach, Washington
(middle) Valledolid Square
(bottom) Bodie Car Lot
At Ruby Beach, the driftwood piles high above the surf line, not carted away to a woodstove somewhere, and the storms and waves wear away the rock down to tall obelisk sea stacks.
Valledolid and the Yucatan are such an interesting mix of old and new: The church is hundreds of years old, and out in the country, the people still live in palm thatched shelters, but they have satellite TV!
In Bodie State Historical Park, as part of the 'arrested decay' policy, they've put a new roof or two on some of the more in-tact structures, but these old cars still slowly settle into the landscape where their owners abandoned them.
