Tar drawings (2) (for part 1: see week 3)

Little cracks in the road surface have been repaired and filled with tar. Cars passing by have broadened these repairs, thus creating intricate tar drawings which, to me, ... look like the waves I have seen while drawing for week 1.

Dessins de goudron (2) (pour partie 1: voir semaine 3)

Petites fissures dans la chaussée ont été réparés et remplis de goudron. Les voitures passantes ont élargi ces réparations, créant ainsi des dessins de goudron complexes qui, pour moi, ... ressemblent à des vagues que j'ai vu en dessinant en semaine 1.

I planned to dowse and draw the observed energy of place in a series of drawings. However, things changed.

A small dark stone that has a thumb smooth surface. On Day 1, Monday 23rd September a close friend's husband died. I carried the stone with me that day and for the rest of the week. Each night before sleep I observed the stone and my feelings through making these drawings.
