Pix from the day
Wandered around Potrero Hill with camera. Using the lens as a sketchpad to frame bits of sky and city. I have simple abstractions in mind for clay and glaze. But while I was out, also keep finding panoramas for paint. Clumsy with the camera, but loving how close I can get to some surreal collisions of metal & cement.
Continuing to think of city as nature. SF holds appeal due to its scale and variety - in the smallest slice, theres an ecology of commerce, persuasion, and inhabitation. Place is created by the contributions (both conscious and un) many people over time.
