Sandbox: Experiencing, Gathering, Iowa City #2

Sandbox

After hours in the studio I needed some fresh, cool air. The red hues all around were speaking to me. So, I decided to make my walk a study in reds — being aware of the color and letting it soak in.

Sandbox: Experiencing, gathering, Iowa City #1

An impromptu beginning to my series, “Experiencing, Gathering, Iowa City” began last week. I started feeling dizzy as I drew closer to the Old Capitol Museum. The sprawling lawn looked incredibly enticing. So, I did what others have been doing for ages, I found a spot, laid down, looked up at the sky, felt the breeze, and played with a blade of grass.
