I'm going through photos from February, adding observations to iNaturalist and editing the "studio" photos.
The goal is to feel ready to both start planning next spring's collecting trips and taking china photos.
My attempt to stain the crazed lines is not resulting quite in the results i want. I've moved on from the fluid acrylic paints, but i have a feeling i really need to warm up the teapot to open the cracks enough to get strong pigment take up. I'm trying markers right now.
We went to see the David Foster Wallace movie, End of the Tour. Intense and saddening. OK, depressing. But good. It was nice to get to know the guy, even if it was third or fourth hand. Christine really has enjoyed his work.
