We are of this Earth as much as the elk and the balsam root. We often forget this fact as adults, but children know it well. This mixed media collage depicts a child throwing the yellow stone towards a stream. She has wild hair blowing in the wind with a woodpecker feather tucked behind her ear and sheet music in her shirt. It is the June 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. This image also includes a Shoshone word for girl. The words “I love the Earth and the Earth loves me back” are incorporated into her shirt.
