Marin was an elementary school student of mine in days of yore, and she often comes to see me when she is in town I think as a touchstone, to help her keep the pathways open to the untrained artist that she was before she grew up.
This one visit, I got out all the color pencils and we drew at the kitchen table Marin, my husband Stephen, our daughter Liliana, and me.

After Marin left, I went outside to my studio and in my preferred medium made this colorway.
I love it for what we all are, for what we once were, and for how we keep those pieces connected.

Situated on a hill overlooking the Haw River, Three Waters Farm looks out over a mixed terrain of fields, woods, and water in the piedmont of North Carolina. We moved here in 1989 with the intent to raise our family on a working homestead. Initially we produced a mix of organic vegetables, cut flowers, goat cheese, and baked goods at the Carrboro Farmers' Market.
Since 1997, we have focused on making products from our sheep's wool and our goat's milk. We produce a variety of hand-painted yarns, and spinning fibers, and from our goat's milk, we make Goat's Milk True-soap, using our own special recipe.
