Watching a pileated woodpecker while hiking this week was the most immediate inspiration. I wanted to somehow capture what I was seeing and also have a way to look more closely but didn't think taking a photograph would be very satisfying. With more time on my hands because of the COVID-19 crisis, I've decided to try to recapture some of the skills and ways of being, particularly my artistic side that have atrophied. The way some of the journals use watercolor is particularly appealing to me. I also love the mix of text and images, especially the use of partial boxes with text. One of the people who wrote in comments suggested combining poetry with images. Challenging myself to write a haiku for each image is appealing.
