Charcoal sketch from photo of the well
Laying out foam core. I added modeling paste to the top of the well border pieces. Now it is drying.
12 by 12 canvas support. Painting the well. My idea is to paint or draw the well in several different forms.
Here is the actual well, which I have shown before. This photo I took several days ago. If it is warm enough I am thinking of going out there to sketch on site. It is under the trees and rather shadowy and cool though.
"The face of the well is on the surface; it is such a pure and surprising presence. Yet the biography of the well is hidden under eternities of mountain and clay. Similarly, within you, the well is an infinite source. The waters are coming from far away. Yet as long as you are on this earth, this well will never run dry. The flow of thought, feeling, image and word will always continue." from Exploring Our Hunger to Belong by John O'Donohue pg14
