Must. Keep. Working. This seems to be the motto of the busy beaver. This mixed media collage depicts a beaver carrying mud, sticks, and stones to its dam. A shadowy otter figure runs away on the shore in the background. We see the underwater scene of the otter dropping the yellow stone as its back feet paddle along. It is the August image found in my 2023 wall calendar. Although it works as a stand-alone image, each design in this collection was created to tell part of a story of connection by following a yellow stone as it is touched by the flora and fauna of Yellowstone National Park. Each image also includes a Native American word for this animal. The words, “The beaver is a keystone species that affects habitat structure and dynamics” are incorporated.
