Fieldwork Friday: Images from the Road

The crazy pace of the last couple of months is starting to take its toll. I am tired. One more workshop to teach next week in Rocky Mountain National Park and then, JOY! I'm more or less home until early September.

I'm sure I don't need to point out that Brush and Baren has been sadly neglected, but I do want you to know that I know and have been acutely aware of the problem. Next week. After next week I KNOW that I have to get a linocut on the table, so I promise a return to the baren portion of the program shortly.

In the meantime, a few recent-ish pages from my journal to keep you company...

Lake Erie from the plane, leaving Ohio enroute to Maine.

A quiet morning in my friend Juanita's backyard, Maine.

Good to hear from you, Sherrie! Love the field sketches; as Wendy says, amazing detail and color along with your superb drawing skills.

It's always a treat to see your sketches from your journeys, and it's really lovely to know you're back home again. The 'hood has missed you! I hope you can rest up in between all the demands on your time and attention. No rest and no printing makes for a very cranky artist. ;)

Hi girls... thanks for the virtual hugs. I'm just back from RMNP... exhausted, but looking forward to getting back to some print time next week. Once I find my table again, that is. Did all this junk really come out of my car?
