Life's Even Littler Surprises!
I've never seen a hummingbird's nest before! Way too cute! My nephew spotted this one in his back yard in an orange tree. The size of the nest is smaller than a golf ball, and the eggs are about the size of those little jelly belly jelly beans. I wish I was going to be here to see them hatch! Life really is full of little surprises!
While I started this blog in 2009 to post assignments for an entry level digital media class, I found it to be quite a fun way to express my thoughts & post my photography and progression of clay work, so I decided to keep it going. While taking a year & a half of art classes @ SOU in Southern Oregon, I still traveled to New Mexico for work during quarter breaks, & finally decided I'd give it a go here for awhile and see what happens. I've now been here 3 years, enrolled in back to back clay classes of all sorts, learning as much as I can about the wild world of ceramics! I not-so-secretly dream of having my own studio & all the free time in the world to create to my hearts content. I'm a mountain girl at heart & love nature, & places that are wild. I've loved photography since as long as I can remember, and have a penchant for documentation through photo narratives... be it artistic process, hiking, travel, life. My big dreams are larger than my current reality, and it seems I am continually seeking a balance between following my artistic dreams, and making ends meet.
