The end of the pencil and the end of my project.
Thank you for paying attention.
For those of you who followed my last 100 Days photo challenge, you may recognize the composition with Agave.
Boy those suckers are sharp!
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.
