Today I painted an antler I found years ago in the woods in Maine. I've been wanting to paint it for ages. I painted it blue first and after a month of displeasure, I painted it white and dipped it's tips in gold. It is by far the most elegant item in my shop and I worry that it seems out of place. Even if it does, it will have some company soon because I'm going to be painting my other antlers too. I really enjoyed photographing this old treasure of mine. It's form inspired what I feel are the loveliest photographs I've taken in a long time.
