With Husk

I spent some time this evening bringing in the husk. After a few hours, I figured it best to lay it aside. I might want to wash it down lightly with a bit of white and better connect the husk to the ear. It's a bit off but that's okay for now.


  1. This is SO amazing. Love the ripples and indentations on the husk showing the imprints of the kernels and you have captured that brittle papery feel of the husks beautifully.
    Sending best wishes to you for a Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Thanks so much, Gretchen. Today I will poke around a bit, hopefully enough to wrap it up.

    And a Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  3. Goodness!! That is beautiful! The precision and craftsmanship are astounding. It reflects such total focus. The color, the sheen and, as Gretchen says, the papery feel of the husks, are amazing.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Oh, thank you so much, Margaret! And, I do hope you and yours had a Happy Thanksgiving. :-)
