new specimens



Last sunday I had the pleasure of sharing some new specimens from my collection with lovelies Tandra and Hannah W after eating some tacos in the backyard...whenever I get to share my stuffs i feel somewhere between an old man getting really ramped about his stamp collection and a young boy holding up two worms he just dug out of the dirt. A pretty good place to feel.


A few days ago I went out to my favorite place, Briones, (photographed above on my first visit 2 years ago), to revisit the spot where I made a big drawing last winter/spring and start a new water color. On my hike out there I walked through the deep cracks in the hills and saw the tip of an antler peaking out of the ground. Upon a bit of investigation I could see there was some treasure to be found so I set up shop and spent about an hour carefully digging out bones, plucking mushrooms, and gathering goodies to bring back home to draw and play with.
here's the lot:
these are ladybug pupa (the shells ladybug larvae form while they are going through ladybug puberty, having their bar mitzvahs and becoming ladybug adults). I actually found these on some rocks at the elementary school where I work, while hanging out with my 2nd grader friend Jared.
tubular mushrooms deep in the crack.
a beetle, a nut, and a little twig that had been home to some crew of little thing.
bud buds.
hardcore leaf skeleton.
my fourth antler.
cow vertebrae (notice the tubular mushroom on the bottom piece).
big bone. I started laughing when I dug this one up...who put this here? am i on candid camera?
jaw piece with tooth still intact. any guesses on the animal?
and finally, a coyote skull. I actually found this in Briones a month ago, the last night I hung out in the hill cracks. i love it.

Generic [url=http://viagra.opuskali.ru]Viagra Super Active[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
