As I move through the world, one of my favorite things to do is learn new ways of making and creating art. here are some of the works that I have completed over the years and I hope you enjoy them.
If you have not been, you should visit the Edge of the Farm Conservation Area. Hays and Donna have placed their acreage into a conservation easement with Three Valley Trust and removed honeysuckle and installed wetlands, and educated hundreds of visitors. I am making a bench to highlight some of the wildlife you can see there. The slats are pine and the drawings are hand drawn from my photos or Hays’ and good old Google. I then wood burn them in. I am unsure what the finished product will look like, but this is where I am now.
I have included English names with the phonetic pronunciation and the scientific names. There are eight panels in total.
I have also created a bird bath for the EFCA. The birdbath features a map of San Salvador Island where Hays and Donna have been leading the Tropical marine Ecology field course for many years. Hays is a hardcore bird watcher and recently also co-authored a book on the Birds of San Salvador. Below is the post about the birdbath on the Edge of the Farm Facebook page.
