A Page from Elsewhere: Cold Austrian Days

imageThis is a basic still life from my time in Austria. It may be of ordinary objects, but for me it stands for time spent away from wifi, hauling wood for the stoves, brewing tea to ward off chills, and folk music being strummed out in the other room. When I lived in the countryside of  Austria, I fed chickens and sheep, cooked lunch, helped in a local shop. My memories of Austria include fresh, brown bread and cold, wet days and a very happy little village.
