By the Sea

This week I've parked myself directly beside the sea, on a little harbor off the Bay of Fundy. Each morning I paint in my makeshift studio on the front porch en plein mer.

Sometimes I feel at sea, getting a noseful of water, thrashing wildly.

Sometimes I feel buoyant, held up by the great grand mystery of the world as surely as I might float on a body of water—with all its attendant great grand mystery.

Today: buoyant.

    1. Thanks, Sheila. Had a good time with this one the whole time I was painting. Already my studies of the past few days have become powerful souvenirs of this vacation in Canada.

  2. Hi Dotty!

    So nice to see a bit of your mobile workspace!

    Bye, Simone
