Shadow Assignment
Yesterday we were given the assignment to explore our concept of "shadows".
Gloomy and mesmerizing. The African village was fascinating. I scored huge strands of raw amber. Glorious African wedding beads and hand carved Hippo Serpentine soap dishes. A few hand woven baskets from west Africa were too hard to exist.

This Is the grand finally day. Cannot wait for the adventures that lie ahead! 


Frighteningly beautiful. The masks, piled together, create a spiderweb of shadows, linking the picture together. Studded with grinning smiles, slit eyes, and woven braids, the masks are menacing and charming all at once. I think a lot of the time, most people only see the surface of things. But every object has a shadow. Shadows are everywhere and create a separate dimension often times skimmed over. When we run through the field of poppies, red and glorious, it is easy to see the flowers. It is easy even to see the immense beauty of the field... but to see the shadows tracing the petals... to see the way the stems create a lace of shimmering lines... this is something special – to see it all, to feel it all.
