Wildcrafting pine yesterday with Brie and @hilarybelieves for a solstice season cordial for balance, grace, and calmness over the holidays. For so many of us, this time of year is bittersweet, filled with memories of those we’ve lost and those that have left us, hard situations with families, unresolved memories and heartbreak. . Pine slips into winter whole, intact, sovereign. A symbol of longevity and eternal life, the spark of green life in gray fields of snow and mud. It’s fresh, vibrant scent brings aliveness into stale spaces. It helps us find home again in our living spaces, hearts and bodies. . One of my favorite herbalists, Judith Butler, says of old pine trees... ”The magic sentience of these trees is undeniably strong. Their trunks stands strong like the torsos of giants, and their branches extend with complexity and grace.” . I learned about Pine as a medicine from another one of my favorite herbalists, @seraphinacapranos , at the our Plantwitch initiation weekend a couple of months ago. She taught me that there are many distinctions in the different species of pine, but the most important is the difference between hardwood and softwood pine. Softwood pines tend to have needles in groups of five attached to twigs radiating off of a central branch. Hardwood pines have needles in groups of two or three per twig. Soft pine needles contain less pitch and turpentine, and are generally better tasting....like lemony forest! . “The pine trees hold Up the white and glistening Snow in silence.” —Austin Barlow . #plantwitch #seasonalliving #pinetrees

#these3things 221 1. My head has an amazing capacity to hold onto completely useless information. This afternoon I was able to recite nearly every cheer I learned during my brief stint as a high school cheerleader. Groundbreaking stuff. 2. Burying your head in the sand sounds like an okay idea until you remember that it means you have a lot of sand in your hair and that shit's itchy. Better to just stay woke. 3. Press - A lot of this going on lately in all the ways. Here's a variety of definitions from Google dictionary /pres/ noun - newspapers or journalists viewed collectively /pres/ verb - move or cause to move into a position of contact with something by exerting continuous physical force. /pres/ verb - (of an enemy or opponent) attack persistently and fiercely. Good to know. What did you learn today?

3/100 #airplanes I struggle with symmetry and making my subject look real and not cartoonish... so I pushed myself today by drawing in a different style. I'm not mad at the results #theniftynine #the100dayproject #throughaprilseyes

#042 #offhandbooks for #the100dayproject is a quick book made from pre-existing content. I printed this on lettersize paper (Canon Matte Photo Paper) so it's pretty small, which you can see in the last photo. I love gouache resist as it's unpredictable but can be embellished. I learned this technique during a most wonderful Watercolor Birds and Beyond class by @illustratedgarden. I plan to use this technique lots more. In the meantime, here's a tiny book of the birds I've gouach resisted. #100daysofoffhandbooks #miniaturebook #swipeleft #foldedpaperbooks #100daysoftinytomes #pap#paper #littlebooks #paper #gouache #birds #greatblueheron #greenheron #crow #mallardduck #blackcrownednightheron #ink

"If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. . Let others lead small lives, but not you.. Let others argue over small things, but not you.. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you.. Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you. . You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. . Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. . If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary." - Jim Rohn #riskhappy

. Wednesday’s #Ladyportrait 7/100 . ‚When he woke up from his blackout, there sat this wondrous creature next to him on a stone. She seemed to be shaped from fog and had the bluest, most beautiful eyes, he had ever seen. She appeared to smile at him, which made him shake his hurting head to make sure, she wasn‘t just a figment of his imagination, conjured up by the recent blow to his head. Suddenly she rose and held out her misty hand to him, silently begging him to follow her...‘ . . Wish you all a wondrous Wednesday, my LovelY*s! 😘👸🏻 . . . . . #sketchbookart #makearteveryday #doitfortheprocess #creatures #100days

Really getting into the 🦃🍁🍂 spirit with @somerbyjones - butternut squash filled ravioli in a brown butter sage sauce. I haven’t had a ton of luck with these flavors before and today we figured it out. The secret? Use a lot of butter. Like a lot. Too much really. But it’s the holiday season and it’s not like I eat a stick of butter every night 💛 moderation is the name of the game 😬

Daily—012 Ongoing project of getting captures (almost) every day. The effort is to get shots and do it daily. Ditching thoughts of context, reason, overall aesthetic, etc. actually takes effort as well, but part of this project is working through those self-imposed constraints. #leveldaily #journal #design #project #the100dayproject #instadaily #light #shadow #street #dar#dark #abstract #ambient #red #art #photo #instapic #dark #nig#night #gradient #color #night #experiment
