Nearly. There’s green and gold in there. The more you look, the more you see. These are just grasses growing wild in our desert-meets-the-ocean climate. It must have looked pretty scruffy around here before the advent of agriculture. And pretty wonderful.
Finding this sort of image makes me feel very aware. I don’t know that I would have noticed it before my art education. The past twenty years have certainly helped me be more visually in tune. It is often difficult for me to tear myself away from reading or writing or art-making. But then I look for — and find — this sort of thing, and it becomes more rewarding.
