EDM 94 Draw A Spoon
Spoons can be challenging -- and these certainly were! But I find spoons to be heavy with meaning. To me, they're the entry -- the vehicle -- of food -- and we all know how meaningful FOOD can be -- especially if you're Italian!! LOL
So I just HAD to sketch THREE spoons:
(1) Our dinner spoon -- the spoons we use daily for all our meals -- the dailyness of nourishment and nurturing ....
(2) Our wooden spoon -- with all its stains and cracks and age -- but a spoon that has stirred all those meals served in love
(3) The plastic spoon used by my grandchildren -- light, curved, soft -- for feeding toothless grins and for being clenched by wee hands as these babies are nurtured, nourished and move, by feeding themselves, toward independence.
Spoons -- but any other name .....LOVE.
