The "underfoot" series begins to be an actual series! Good progress has been made on the third linocut image in the last 24 hours, with colors 2 (light gray) and 3 (green) both making it on to paper.
There is, actually, a concept behind all this complicated imagery of tangled bits below my feet. (And it's not just about a bad habit of not watching where I'm going.) I find it curious that we tend to describe our trodden landscapes with "throw-away" words: leaf litter, woody debris, duff, detritus. And this image here? Not a pond or a creek or a stream. It's a ditch, plain and simple. There's something profound in this idea, I just know it. I'm not entirely able to articulate it yet, but it's there.
