Mind Fern (oil pastel drawing)
like branches at the ends of branches at the ends of branches
shrivel and shake
and release their spores into the farthest corners.
they wake you up.
Do you remember your name?

About Mind Fern
There are a lot of ways to use oil pastels. And I still haven’t quite found the way that feels right for me, but this was a good evolution.
I used the same tool I used in Delete Memory to scratch away layers of oil pastel and make the textures you see in this drawing.
Speaking of Delete Memory, I guess themes around memory show up a lot in my drawings. You find it in the aptly named drawing, Memory (clever, right?), the also aptly named Find the Memory, the painting, Avoiding Voluntary Amnesia, and a whole lot more that are maybe more subtle about it.
