now i've moved on to more leaves. stopping and picking them up from the road or parking lot or sidewalk. even cutting bits of garden plants to sketch. i'm nearly finished with everything that was in the hat. just have a couple of pinecones and a feather left. you know what that means? back to the park tomorrow. i want to clip a wee branch of those orange berried bushes that bloom this time of year. they're everywhere in los angeles. those burnt orange berries hanging in clusters. everywhere!
i was thinking of taking my small white christmas tree out of the garage, but i'm too busy sketching & reading the old filth trilogy. so i took out some christmas dishtowels instead and hung them from the oven handle. works for me!
