THAT’S RIGHT. It was on a Tuesday, in the afternoon. A beautiful day on the Hill.
A group of artists spent the afternoon on Tumamoc painting and drawing. Everyone got together late in the day and anyone who wanted to could share what they had done. I enjoy watching other artists work. It allows me top share in the pleasure in their own work, and inspire me do do more of my own.
Here are some of the results from last Tuesday’s session.
As a reminder, we are getting together at the Tumamoc gate at 1:30 pm every Tuesday until further notice. (That means until we think it’s too hot and change the time.) Stay until sunset. Meredith is the host.
While everyone was painting or drawing, I walked down into the hinterland with a ladder and photographed the new fallen saguaro I’ve taken an interest in. The late afternoon light was perfect, the sun just above the ridge above me, the last rays falling on the subject. This will be a series as I document its stages of decay over time. It’s not dead yet–there is a gradation between live and dead in cacti that is hard to define. I’m wondering if it will still flower in May.
