This a clay sculpture I made way back when. A perfect spot for hide-and-seek.

Pencil meets Glass.
In 2009 I did my first 100 Days photo challenge, with a Glass being my object. It endured several hardships, and perhaps one day it will take its rightful place in the blogosphere. For now, it must be satisfied with a cameo.
The sword is sometimes just what is needed. Luckily, there is always one at hand in my house (a benefit of being married to a fencer, or rather an EX-fencer).
Now that the pencil is in two pieces, I feel I have a bit more artistic freedom. And I see, looking back over this project, that I lean towards the abstract or ambiguous.
I really am a sucker for trees, especially ones with interesting bark. This tree was next to the Pence Gallery in Davis, CA, where I was leading a workshop. Finally it stopped raining long enough for me to take its portrait…. with pencil, of course.
