Bonding With The Landscape

The Redstarts (Warblers) on a Hemlock branch was done to THE GOAT RODEO SESSIONS, Yo Yo Ma…a goat rodeo is when “multiple conflicting elements all must be choreographed and aligned to avoid a chaotic result.” For this context, those elements are the branch design, needle placement, position of the birds, the male and female reproductive parts of the Hemlock, color, ink. I recognize the process is gaining strength. In this third piece, I felt less hesitant in the overall approach to design and balance. However, I’m finding it difficult to adhere to the 3 hr./day rule and tend to work longer most days. This, of course, has it’s consequences. Overall, I’m pleased with the effort and see improvement.
