This piece is part of Bryce's Enormous Tiny Art Show #31 collection, "Neversink." Jackson County Alabama has more caves per square mile than any other place on earth (so they say!). The exposed stone crowning hillsides and limestone cave walls reflect the full spectrum of natural light. These drawings in color pencil on toned paper explore the quality of form and color that make up the living stone in and around Neversink, one of the many remarkable karst locations in Jackson County.
