Spanish Moss - living line. For this part of a continuing series, I initially worked over the course of a year from a clump of moss, shifting it into different shapes and pinning it to a post above the drawing table in my Boston studio. The images are from direct observation filtered through intuitive play and a formal lens. These layered drawings examine the beauty, close-up, of this epiphyte or air plant that rests on trees while living solely from air and the debris that air carries.
