These two artworks were created for a story I wrote, a feminist creation myth called The Seeing Seeds. The book itself hit some obstacles and never got finished, but I wound up with some images I liked. I live and work on a small farm, and much of my work is rooted in that place. I swing between working in that more literal way, and this more metaphorical one. Both ways of working, although polar opposites in some ways, are motivated by the desire to tell a story. Birdwoman and Rained Down (both approximately 11x14) were originally created in ink and watercolor and later digitally altered.
