Nature Boy/Process

You...You said,
"There are many truths,
But they are not parts of a truth."
Then the tree, at night, began to change,
Smoking through green and smoking blue.
                  -On the Road Home, Wallace Stevens
                   (misquoted earlier today on SpiritCloth)

Drawn last night while spinning (figuratively), I have been working on more Alice things (with a view to making a print on demand book) but want to abstract or extrapolate from the original and am in a holding pattern. Curse you, negative capability.

I adore Nature Boy! there is something feminine about it too?

If this is what you turn out while spinning, then spin more. It feels like a textile to me.

Your drawing is Apollo and the girl who turns into a tree to escape his pursuit.

Celeste- that is a different take, hmm. My feeling was more that he was taken over and helpless to define himself apart from nature, in a sense a failure of the Apollonian ideal. But I appreciate a different point of view.

Caio -

As you know, I can talk pretty...it's the actual doing that challenging me.
