More from the Water District pond. My walk there made me very happy. I wish my burrowing owl still lived here. But times are tough for burrowing owls in Santa Clara County. Too many bulldozed and paved-over places. Not enough just plain ol' funky dirt with second-hand animal burrows in it. I have read about projects that tried to relocate displaced owls to PVC pipe homes in other neighborhoods.. If I were an owl, I don't think I'd like the architecture. It's Valentine's Day, so today in printmaking class we had a demonstration of viscosity printing--a way to print with two colors of different oilinesses, one of which resists the brayered-over other. The Valentine was in red and yellow, said BE MINE on a heart, and had a lacy trim. A good time was had by all . . .
