I've been doing some mulling and sketching lately and finally committed a few to my Shina wood... and started carving today. I'm continuing with the water - ocean - beach theme. This time I was thinking more about river stones and what water looks like in a slow moving river - how it twirls, moves, shines, 'separates' etc. As well as what you can see underneath. The cicadas or crickets are sort of a wild card. We've been listening to them a lot around here and my daughter is saying 'cricket' now, which I love! (One of her favorite books is The Very Quiet Cricket by Eric Carle.) I'm thinking about how these may look printed on fabric. Hmmmm.
