the great wave off turtle lake
these snow laden grass seed heads remind me of the hokusai print of the great wave off kanagawa, as part of his thirty-six views of mount fuji. i may never reach his level of obsessive power, but i sometimes think of myself as chronicling thirty-six or so different views of each upper midwestern species of flora. he spent 60 years making paintings and prints. i’ve been at STILL blog for six. i’ve got some more obsessing to do yet.
