Late June, Shakerag in Tennessee

Early October, 2009, I made 16 cards after finding a roadkill inspiration with a theme based in RED: a recently ripped favored shirt, parts of my old stamp collection and a recently encounterd creature. I added some ink. Here are four of the sixteen:

 

Early October, 2009, after I found my First Communion prayer book from 1955.  I ripped the pages from it to work with:

Hmmm, why I did I become a Woodworker??    Do I look like this??

COMMENTS

Making these cards is like being in a pool. This is not a lap pool, or an Olympic pool; Actually, it's a swamp.  It requires patience with your self, with all your voices.  It may require a accidental or coincidental contact with someone, some place, some thing... that scratches you into a new awareness... We are looking for portals that are never in the same place.  Alertness is your ally.
