Noses on high alert



I finished this piece the other day and found it really evocative for some reason. I think part of my child soul is in this piece, perhaps residing in that little red barn, peeking out at her landscape, planning her day of adventure. The plum trees have blossomed and there is this slightly sweet scent in the air-all noses of Apifera are engaged in active smelling year round, but I suspect spring makes their nose receptors on high alert.

Tiny houses in a big landscape always appeal to me. Maybe the diminuative size brongs us back to childhood. Small safe intimate places...xox
