First Art in the Revamped Studio

Some months ago, Alex and Lil challenged me to take part in their latest art project: Create your own plant (image). I more or less blew it off, because winter is mighty cold in the studio, and besides, the studio had become so cluttered with OPJ (Other People's Junk) that I didn't want to be out there.

Bernie came to the rescue and built me a mighty rack of shelving -- beautiful and spacious -- and now there is little clutter (although the OPJ still tries to migrate to any open work surface) so that it is a pleasure to work out there again.

Weather being shamefully clement, I spent an evening at my workdesk and built my imaginary plant: A kind of lichen that could help transform the face of Mars.

Here is my lichen, tiny fronds greeting the pale light of a Martian sunrise.
