Dry Erase Board Art of Nature
I drew this feather on our dry erase board because I wanted to experiment with a new medium. Feathers are a spiritual symbol for me, the way they look so imperfectly perfect. Using a dry erase board was less challenging than I anticipated it would be, and I value its impermanence. It’s smooth, like gliding over the surface of water. As I try to express what we’re doing at Ripples through art, (like this autumn tree sketch) it’s always these drawings that aren’t really explanatory but just suggestive that stand out and make me want to share. I have plenty of sketches of how our furniture will fit into the ground floor of the earthbag home, but, this feather is the sketch I shared. It feels more meaningful than a floor plan.
