drawings of my rocks
more abstract still,
the linear quality of the first six below
the result of these dried grass stems
ive been harvesting.
like thin (but very fragile) bamboo, each lasts
for no more than a drawing or two
and toward the end they shred.
is a revelation on the page.
then there are the ones using my fave drawing tool - the general's sketch and wash pencil. draws like a soft, dark graphite but responds to water like a dream... these, too, get used up quickly. sometimes i use them with ink and ink wash.
