bowl and ladle


A carved ladle and wooden bowl seemed right for my drawing tonight. Even though the temperature still feels like summer, the clearer shorter days have me thinking about autumn - and vegetable soup. The empty bowl will have to stand in for many soups and stews to come...

This makes me think of the bowl as a metaphor for Earth (with home, hearth, consumption in a good way) moving through a red/brown Cosmos. The b/w bowl as limited, the deep colors as unlimited.

Is that, like, too philosophical? :-) But I SEE it in your drawing!

Wonderful to learn what others see in a picture. I hadn't thought of the work as metaphorical - thanks for showing it to me in that light.
