One of my favorites of the still life series. Working with sacred geometry and the power of nature's Fibonacci sequence, local organic objects from Santa Fe are arranged with Forsythia, the flower of anticipation.
From March 29, 2020:
Objects foraged on a nature walk in Galisteo. Dirt saturated with pigment in shades of yellow that I'll crush and turn into paint after. More bones. Forsythia has arrived in lower elevations. Forsythia, I read, is the flower of anticipation. Something I'm feeling a lot of but sort of in an inert way. Anticipation means you know exactly what's going to happen and feel emotion towards it. The lack of knowing what anything looks like going forward, be it the health of people we know or the state of small businesses, is strange and scary. In yoga, I always realized how much energy is in stillness. Relaxing and breathing into discomfort brings freedom from anticipating and jumping to what's next too quickly, risking injury and unbalanced state of mind. Trying to pull from that now that everything is still and uncomfortable.
