Thirty-in-Thirty 2013: Day One . . .

New Work l January 2013 ⓒ michaela harlowUntitled #1 ⓒ 2013 Michaela Harlow -16″ x 16″ Pastel & Pencil on Paper

Early start in the studio today. Working in silence. Unusual. Typically I focus on music to hold a mood and quiet the noise in my head —not so today. Light snow falling outside. Wind blowing. Small flock of turkey foraging on the back terrace.

No awkward start today. Hungry for studio time. I’ve been starving for months.

Beech leaves are the brightest color in the forest now. i notice them on the ground —shaken free by snow, wind, red squirrels— ghosted & frozen between sheer sheets of ice.
