Metamorphosis/ Kafka

Metamorphosis/ Kafka, originally uploaded by moonwild.

It is not necessary that you leave the house. Remain at your table and listen. Do not even listen, only wait. Do not even wait, be wholly still and alone. The world will present itself to you for its unmasking, it can do no other, in ecstasy it will writhe at your feet.

This assemblage was inspired by the works of Franz Kafka. I created the work on a antique book cover. I use various embellishments such as part of a old ruler, a tiny copper hand, old schoolroom scissors, a image of Kafka famed in a rusty found metal piece. A little sltoid tin with a cut window houses a hand-painted faux beetle represent Metamorphosis. A glass orb and a line from the above quote is on the bottom of the work.
I also used paint and inks to further embellish the work.

Moss garden

Take a look at my little moss garden!! I love mosses and lichens and am growing several mossy little gardens .The moss transplants really easily. I picked off lots of this moss off the house roof eves, where it shouldn't be!
Cold weather here today so I covered up my tender plants (and my tender self) last night!!
Lots of birds starting nests in the trees and the other night about 3 am I looked out the window and saw a mother skunk and three tiny babies in the back yard.
The bear once again knocked over the compost bin in the field....thats why I keep it so far from the house.My dog, Rowdy Jack, sniffed the crime area, furred up and scratched with his back feet and peed on a bush to let the bear know a manly dog was on duty!!
Good Boy!!

Quote of the day!
If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.
Kahlil Gibran

Girl Who Turned Into a Tree

Girl Turned into a Tree, originally uploaded by moonwild.

The Girl Who Turned into a Tree

Spirit of the wood;
Take me–make me next of kin
To your leafy brood.

This is from my series of assemblage that are fairy tale inspired. I always loved fairy tales as a child and these are assemblages that I am giving my own stories.
The quote is one from Ethelwyn Wetherford’s wonderful poems.

She is an ethereal being. Her mysterious face is created with an altered image behind a thick lens embellished with mica pieces. Her skirt is copper mesh with a little moss on it. Her arms are copper tubes and doll arms. Her legs are a woody branch.
