Once autumn slips its toe in the door the days quickly shorten. On the beautiful, crisp and clear fall days, there is still gathering to do. I’ve yet to collect cattail leaves and the stems of nettle and fireweed. The sweetgrass I grow at home, was gathered weeks ago, and is now dry. Rainy days like today, give me pause to review the summer and to think ahead.

I created the following two pieces for the Messages from the Land exhibit. It is an honor to have my work in an exhibit with nine other artists who so creatively express their relationship to the Puget Sound landscape.

|Nest #2, Willow, Ivy, Hazelnut, Handmande Cedar Bark Paper, (approx: 22"x 27"x 9")|
|A Hazelnut Branch "Eye"created for Art Along the Trail|
