NOVEMBER 14 and 15

Spent the morning of the 14th on the bay with sketchpad in hand.  Had a great studio visit with Joanna Kidney, Irish artist at BAF for another week. Lovely, sensitive drawings and encaustic paintings - seeking to make some sense of our brief and tiny lives against the vastness of our universe. Good conversations about exploring new mediums. We have made a date to work in the print room next Tuesday.

Got in a little studio time to explore my love affair with stones. Work on thumbnail drawings at night, then try to dig a little deeper with  compositions in the morning.

Sorta like what is happening here, particularly these last two. See a little shift here in my thinking.

Galpals from the Eastern Shore arrived late today. Two more arriving on Sunday. I, too, will take a holiday - from writing - since the next 10 days will be filled with touring around County Mayo with friends. Might send a few pictures of the landscape if WiFI is at hand.

Talk to you after the Thanksgiving holidays. And -have a lovely day with family and friends.
