"I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody’s around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That’s all I do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be.” J. D. Salinger, The catcher in the rye.

“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” - David Attenborough. @david_attenborough

I got together with @liznugentdraws and @zarprey yesterday and we made and painted with pokeberry ink!
First we gathered some pokeberries, mushed them up, strained them through cheesecloth and decanted them into a couple of smaller jars. That’s it! It’s super simple. You can add a clove to the jar to help preserve it. If you try it, make sure you wear gloves! The berries and juice are toxic to ingest, and can also irritate sensitive skin!
I can say without hesitation, this is my favorite color. When painting with it, it’s more pink and turns slightly more purple as it dries. It’s rich and vibrant and layers really well. Watered down, it’s a beautiful light orchid color. It’s perfect!
