cairn II

This cairn sits atop Big Crow as well. It may be closer to the Nun da ga o ridge trail that links Big Crow with Mt Weston in the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Mts.

granite detail

A close up detail of the granite rockface from my pastel. the texture of the mineral colors reminds me of Jackson Pollack's "Lavender Mist." Perhaps this is where my direction is heading. This is what the rock pictures are really about.
The cairns are about place. This is about markmaking.
