Love remembers better than it was. Forgets any failures. Holds onto the best of all the times. It fills in the gaps. Happy Father's Day, Daddy. It has been a long time. . . And it is no surprise, Love Remembers Forever, as well It has been ten years this month since I saw you, but I know you are surely not missing this place. "It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being." - John Joseph Powell I hope you saw that reflection back because you surely were loved. #fathers #daddy #dad #appalachia #fathersday #happyfathersday #mydad

Cancer aka "The Crawdad". Also the last sign in the Appalachian zodiac series. Kinda sad about it to be honest. Not sure what the next series will be, but in the meantime I've got more off air pieces in mind that I have to get out. . . . . . . #zodiac #cancer #cancerzodiac #pen #drawing #illustration #illustrator #micron #micronart #stipple #stippling #pointillism #line #crawdad #appalachia #zodiacseries #river #lastone #theend #artist #kentuckyartist #artistoninstagram #artofinstagram #lexingtonart

Braved the rain showers and had a great time in the Hocking Hills with some friends at the annual Duck Creek Log Jam. I love this beautiful part of Southeastern Ohio that I call home. 🏕🔥☕🦆🎸 * * @duckcreek_ohio @duckcreekhobie #kampfirecoffeeroasters #duckcreeklogjam #yipyip #duckcreeklogjam2019 #supportlocal #localmusic #appalachia #hockinghills #hockinghillscoffee #stringband #souteastearnohio #ohiomade #ohioproud #ohioishome #supportlocalmusic #localcoffee #corporatecoffeesucks

Halfway through the year and my goal of hiking at least 1x monthly is going strong! It may seem like a silly goal, but there are definitely times where it’s been tough to make time to get out into the woods. A big draw of why we moved to Asheville was how accessible the trails and forestry are in the area, so it’s important to me that I spend time enjoying our beautiful home. Hike 10 of 2019 included a scenic drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, stopping at Fryingpan Tower, an overlook with a stunning view of Looking Glass Rock, and a freeeeezing dip at Skinny Dip Falls. ✌️ . . . . .

Day 3 of WV Tourism's West Virginia week photo challenge: favorite season. ⁣ ⁣ West Virginia boasts four beautiful seasons and the landscape is stunningly beautiful for each one. I can't possibly pick a favorite because I love each one for its unique qualities. Bird song and rebirth of colors in the spring 🌱, flowers and the flurry of activity in the summer 🌻, crisp mornings and the stunning foliage of autumn 🍁, skiing and quiet calm of winter 🌨. ⁣ ⁣ Pictured is a favorite local trail in Canaan Valley clothed in each season's beauty that I put together in 2016-2017.

Jayden stand in the woods by our home. She is my twin sister, older than me by one minute. Ever since our move to the countryside, we find relaxation outside in nature. . This series of images comes from a recently published zine, which features photos and written reflections made by high school students in Bellaire, Ohio. The project was made possible by the non-profit, the Rural Arts Collaborative, an organization which aims to support art education in under-resourced communities. The non-profit pairs an artist and school within the same community. Together, they work during the school year on a project that can eventually be shared with the public. . The goal of this particular project was to encourage students to use photography as a vehicle for exploration and expression. By engaging in the photographic process, students can experience the beauty inherent in mystery, the reward of risk-taking, and the fruits of perseverance.

Yesterday John and I had the opportunity to explore the homestead of midwife Aunt Orelena Puckett. . Aunt Orelena and her husband, John, lived on the Homestead most of their days. . Orelena began a 50+ year career as a mountain midwife after she turned 50, delivering well over 1,000 babies all around the mountain range, traveling most by horseback, but at times afoot. . Sadly, Aunt Orelena buried all 24 of her sweet babes as infants. . This woman of the mountain lived to age 102, catching her last birthed blessing the same year she passed. . In a time when midwives were paid a dollar during hard times to as much as $6 during boom years, often paid in food goods, it seems Aunt Orelena lived a rich life many of us would be grateful for. . The Puckett Homestead stands in the shade of pinoaks alongside the #blueridgeparkway outside Fancy Gap, northbound out of the Gap at milepost 189.9. . Take Dad and the kids, and perhaps a picnic basket and go explore history together. It’s a terrific way to #makememories with your family. . . . #happyfathersday2019 #cassandrapaquinfinearts #appalachia #landscapephotographer #mountainhistory #inthesemountains #fancygapva #orlenapuckett #homestead #pucketthomestead #vablueridge #vahomestead #ncartist #vahistory #exploreappalachia #exploreva #visitva #photog #photoartist #photographer #southernstatescollective

The fireflies last night were the sparkliest I’ve ever seen, gold ones and blue ones, even with a big bright full moon lighting up the sky. Wow. I gathered some medicine this morning with moon magic. Chamomile and lavender were both ready, and generous. I’m teaching tonight, and was going to take the day off until then, but I’m so inspired by the mini paintings I started yesterday I think I might go to the studio after all! I thought it would be harder to get into the rhythm of going there every day as opposed to working from home, but I’m in love. 🥰 #happyfullmoon

A couple of serving spoons made of apple wood drying before making finishing cuts. Green wood is easier to carve than dry, but the fibers tear when wet. When the wood is dry a razor sharp knife will cleanly slice through the fibers, creating a smooth, burnished finish. . . . #spooncarver #spooncarving #greenwoodworking #sloyd #realcraft #newwoodculture #treen #treenware #sustainableliving #handcarved #handcrafted #woodcraft #modernrustic #appalachia #boone #boonenc #tradetn #828isgreat

Mornings are my favourite, but I’m rarely up to enjoy them because I work late into the wee hours a lot or else am confined to bed with chronic health issues. There is seldom an in between. I think #awesomeaida the #servicedog enjoyed sunup as much as I did. 😊 #morning #summer #appalachia #sunup

Good day to you my flock. It's a filthy rainy day in Old England, and, in case that brings a pride month rainbow, please remember: your Reverend entreats you to lift up those who are downtrodden, and to celebrate all that is joyous. Your brothers and sisters (for so they are), are celebrating their right to exist, which was hard won not long ago, and continues to be under threat. 🌈 This week, the good word reveals @timobrienmusic , @great_lake_swimmers , @mountainmanband , @christhilemusic and @sarahwatkinsmusic. Listen, and your soul will be enriched https://open.spotify.com/user/114249094/playlist/7MlKoe94p8u6SvWHAGZBwx?si=uN4xAWQFRJCZdn9kfRaHug #americana #americanamusic #countryfolkmusic #countryfolk #mountainmusic #bluegrass #appalachia #appalachianmusic #sundaymorning #SundayMorningComingDown #beardedmusician #thereverendsam #SundaySermon #oldtime #oldtimemusic #christhile #sarahwatkins #greatlakesswimmers #mountainman #timo 'brien

How I start on an axed spoon blank: get up at 4:00 in the morning and get the bialetti going before digging through my bag o blanks for the one I'm most excited about. I remove some waste wood from the center of the bowl which makes the next step easier, smoothing out the top of the bowl. Once the top of the bowl is smooth I'll feel it's safe to attack the outside rim of the bowl, first removing some of the chunkiness and then smoothing round the outside and working on making it symmetrical with the handle. . . . #spooncarver #spooncarving #greenwoodworking #sloyd #realcraft #newwoodculture #treen #treenware #sustainableliving #handcarved #handcrafted #woodcraft #modernrustic #appalachia #boone #boonenc #tradetn #828isgreat
