Not Yet


This morning I went out in the darkness and raindrops, and made the above sketch of the full canal. But I have discovered that I am not yet done with Sunken Canal after all. The top image is a 12x9 pastel started last night, and completed tonight. When thinking of the Sunken Canal I thought of a beautiful piece of music I heard a couple years ago, Old and Lost Rivers by Tobias Picker. The canal is now found and risen, but I still remember the Sunken Canal.

Though we may think we've forgotten a memory, memories are never finished with us. They never really leave.

In case you didn't see it, Casey Klahn has written a good post about staying with a subject:

Sam, Thanks. Faulkner said somewhere that the past is never past. Thanks for the pointer to Casey Klahn's post. I try to stay with what is usually around me, and interests me, even if it appears limited.

Kelly, Thank you. I may have a couple more sunken canals before I'm done.
