Butterflies and Anvils - New Photographic Journal

Visual artist and educator Eileen Rafferty has just published the first edition of Butterflies and Anvils, a quarterly photographic journal filled with inspiration and art.  The journal is available through Magcloud and you can purchase it through this link: http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/168106/follow .  

In each issue there is an extensive artist’s interview, beautiful photographs, creative writing, articles about technique and creativity and best of all - you actually hold it in your hands and feel the pages. 

I was honored to be chosen as the first artist interviewed in this journal.  You can see my work, read my words and see a photograph of "Bad Sandy".

Don't let this journal slip out of your hands.  We all need inspiration and Eileen Rafferty has succeeded in making something tangible and beautiful that we will return to over and over again. (And best of all, the spring issue will soon be available!)

Thank you Eileen!

Wyoming under water

This part of Wyoming, Ucross, used to be a redwood forest and completely under water a long long time ago.

On the way to my studio this morning

This one has ink on paper too.  I've discovered that by adding, drawing, wiping, smudging, my marks feel more solid.
