i bought white tulips a few days ago as a prop for a video i am filming with my daughter on making homemade yogurt. i will share it with you when i am done. this proud, shapely petal is all that remained of the tulips this afternoon.
i am making some spring-themed shadow boxes for my friend’s south minneapolis store called corazon. I was about to glue this tiny blue jay feather into one of the boxes, but I was having trouble letting go of it. so i photographed it for STILL blog. now i can let it go.

i have all my collections and specimens laid out right now as i prepare for an art show. all the harvest-gold and coppery-bronze popped out at me today. so i put together this late winter color study. it also happens that each item had either fallen to the ground or fallen over when i found it, which makes it a different kind of study as well.
assorted specimens from minnesota, california, and france
