Pen on notebook paper with a staple, 3 1/8 x 3 inches, Saturday, March 24th, 2012, Little Red Hen, Green Lake, Seattle.
This was the very first version of Mercy Seat, from nearly nine years ago. It was on a larger piece of paper and sort of scribbled into the corner as a pretty basic idea. But I liked that basic idea, I did, and so did two more versions, larger, shortly after this, neither of which will be presented in these pages. And so but then I always meant to come back to it, and now I have, as you will see in subsequent posts.
