Stitches in Coal and Clay


These "stitches" are the marks of coastal clay deposited from the geology of Whatcom County's Chuckanut formation and coal from an exposed seam in Alger, Washington. Creating this piece was a mindful practice, much like hand stitching. I enjoyed noticing the character of each little mark as I made them, one at a time. 

It is 22x30 inches, on thick cold press watercolor paper.
