This another piece I’ve been working on. I’ve been going on short hikes behind the cabin and collecting different treasures I find. I’ve found some amazing insects that are perfectly preserved and dry. I also have so many rocks you wouldn’t believe it. It’s just like when I was a kid and called the little black rocks “dog noses.” After I bring everything back I identify it and put it in a jar. Each jar will have a label when I’m finished.
I thought I’d also put this picture up because its so funny. This is my grandparents and all the kids at the cabin. My mom is the one on the far right. It’s interesting staying here because there is so much of my family history preserved here. The bar that my grandparents owned is right down the road as well. In the piece above I was thinking about this preservation of the natural environment as well as my family’s stories.
