Orchid

Been thinking about orchids this past week. In June, I love wandering around in the woods in Vermont looking for them. There is one stretch of stream in the kingdom that just wanders around and back onto itself, creating little islands and rivulets among the roots of old cedar. There are plants that pop up each spring, in the midst of this eddied backwater. This time of year, the shapes are just in my imagination a lot. Someone brought a bunch of old linoleum blocks over to the shop at 8 1/2 x 11 and I did a little sketch and Bread and Puppet style homage print, and I've named one of my indigo dyed scarves after the flower.
