Collage 364

Lynn sent Team Tolstoy a bunch of youtube links about Yasnaya Polyana that we've all been watching. Although I made this piece several months ago, it has the feel of the former Tolstoy estate, considering the trees and blue of the sky. In one of the videos, the young woman commentator said that to know the Russian landscape is to understand the Russian people. That seems to be true of all places and all peoples. -- Lola
