Welcome to my new journal~ Let It Grow

Hello there! I'm Kristina~ introductions like this feel silly, so you may read about me and my past adventures here:

Water bright as the sky from which it came
And the name is on the earth that takes it in
We will not speak but stand inside the rain
And listen to the thunder shout
"I am, I am, I am, I am"

I finished this painting on Saturday~ the first of my illustrations for Let It Grow. The corn woman is found in legends of many native american tribes, the thunderbird and stylized clouds and rain, and beadwork are based on plains tribe imagery. This piece was a new direction for me, and aside from a few elements (the corn, the way the "flat" parts were supposed to work with the rest), I'm happy with it.

There was a little snow on the ground this morning. It wasn't quite foggy, but the air just seemed heavy and gray. Three mule deer were up on the hill, feeding on the thinnest new shoots of grass. Robins have came back, there are tiny, baby leaf buds on the trees~ spring is getting closer every day!

Well, thank you for visiting my new little place! I look forward to making this a real journal, where I can share all my inspirations~ happenings, memories, things I collect, things I see in the woods, books, music... and some artwork, too. :) Please be patient while I figure out how to make it all pretty in here and add links and things. Have a beautiful day, new friends! :)
