In the aftermath of all the past month's travails, comes the clearing out of my mother's house. She did so many things and accumulated so many treasures and other bits, that there is no way for our family to absorb it all. So as we clear things out and prepare to sell her house, I've taken to recording some of the things that we are unable to keep.
My mother had a long time interest in archeology and along with that, the pottery and basketry of the early southwest native americans. She collected a few pieces and learned to make others in the traditional ways. Here I've shown a few of them in my Artist Journal Sketchbook.
