Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

Orbs of morning dew coalesce on petals, leaves and mountain tops, as the sun wakes – slowly stretching its arms.

It is morning.

Arting for 365 Day 52: Mountain Girl

8 x 10″ Mixed Media: Ink and watercolor

With her southern drawl you’d never peg her as a mountain girl. Surely she would feel more comfortable in the Tennessee heat. Such an assumption would be wrong.

Instead she flees to the trails and enjoys the cool, crisp air that is present at elevations of this magnitude. She insists on collecting antlers, and skins, and anything woodsy; and saves the branches from fall trees to adorn her cabin for special occasions.

While she sits on her porch, sipping coffee from her earth colored mug, she delights in the fact that the deer nibbling on the grass in front of her will be back tomorrow. Because that is how it is in the mountains.
