Art Assignment 47: Body in Place

At this time of year I start thinking about my garden a lot. I love to garden but I’m definitely an amateur. I’ve been trying to fix up my back yard for a while now. It was overgrown when we bought the house and I’m trying to impose some sort of order while making my garden healthy and artistic. It took me a while to get to it because I fixed up the front yard first. That’s the part that everyone sees from the street. It’s mostly just my husband and I who spend any significant time looking at the back yard.

This is one of the empty garden beds in my back yard.

Looking at the plain dirt is sort of like looking at a blank page with writer’s block. I just can’t picture what I want.

I decided to make an imprint in the dirt.

So now I’ve made a mark on the garden.

And the garden has left a mark on me too. #theartassignment
