Day 55 & 56 "Water Walkers

Yesterday I drew, starting with this plant. I have a picture of this plant growing in the middle of the river surrounded by rocks. I got to thinking about the Esopus River in Phoenicia and Kathi. This was one of Kathi's favorite places and my brother let her ashes go there.
Someone is always building these rock towers. I think there is a name to them. It turned out to look like a procession to me, these "water walkers" going down the river at sunset. It created some sadness for me, but the plant is hope and rebirth. The Rock people are honoring it... birth, death, rebirth.
This evening I painted it.
