Spring in New England

We had a brief snow squall over the weekend, and frigid temperatures yesterday and today.  Great light, though.  Really great light!

I am beginning to collect some urban textures for a next project.

Also, I am really looking at roof lines, because as I continue with house quilts, I want to vary the simple triangle roof I have been making for way too long.

It felt good to step out of the very, very crowded orthodontist’s office (door to the far left in drawing above) and pull out some packing paper I had garbage-picked a few weeks back and DRAW.  Which means to LOOK, and SEE.  Shadows, lines, the cold, cold wind — so much better than flipping through an old Redbook (they don’t even get PEOPLE at this orthodontist) in a stuffy room full of other annoyed people.

Tomorrow — the Small Town quilt update…

      Hi Chris, it’s supposed to be in the high 40’s today — so perhaps this afternoon will feel more like spring!

      I just took a first gander through your site — I will be checking back to look at your impressive catalog of pictures… I posted a bunch of comments there and probably should have posted this there, too, but do you have a favorite camera? A favorite film?

    I love these photos — but most of all I love the packing paper drawing. It makes me want to get away from some of my internal/exploratory/abstract journal entries and to get out there, roam around, and SEE.

    Thank you turningturning… it has been a good day precisely because I once again allowed myself to get out there, roam around, and SEE. Shooting pix in Brookline this morning was COLD, but the ancient beeches that I love there did not disappoint and I found an unbelievably beautiful turkey feather, which somehow, gives me hope.
