Vacation mode


I have been wandering and relaxing and doing some work and some drawing and generally being in vacation mode. 

Today I wandered around the southern shore of the Avalon, through tiny communities that even through the thunderstorm that hovered overhead, still appealed to me.  (I think Mount Carmel could be my new second home...)

There is a lovely orange seaweed strewn across beaches in the region that I don't see in other parts o the island.  On this beach, there were large strands, looking for all the world like wet lasagna noodles!

Home again, I am still sorting images and found this little one done with on online sketch program that I play with now and then.  I enjoy the freedom of using this program and the results it can have.  It is yet another tool to help me work out composition, values and subjects before they translate onto paper.

Vacation for artists means less focus on the business of art and more pure art! Yay for you, Jeanette! ;)
