Magaguadavic Maps

This week I live on a little bit of turf that is entirely new to me.

I set up an improvised studio space en plein air, and what lands on the turf of two 9/12" sheets of drawing paper is entirely new to me as well.

  1. Love your scribbles, as always. I can see that you are having a wonderful time and that you spirit is flying. The red one reminds of the colors I see when I am swimming in the pool and I close my eyes and see amazing colors. Can you go swimming where you are? Water must be very COLD!

    1. Thanks, Carol. Vacation painting is a gift—with its call to play with limited supplies, its invitation to improvise a few square feet of some kind of workable studio space, and its ability to engage me fully in situ; I carry home with me an embodied experience that becomes a souvenir at a cellular level : )

      Swimming? Nowhere on the radar screen.

    1. I DID paint! Every brush stroke was a surprise to me, making itself manifest on paper the way IT wanted to.

      Having a grand holiday in a tiny quiet little village. Thanks!

  3. It is delightful to find what we can do with limited space and supplies...almost freeing, right? These are sprightly and bright - can't wait to see where this journey takes you!

  4. Love the new header, that gives me a close up of your scrumptious scribbles. Love the candylicious colors! Love the frilliness!
    And the cool blues and greens, Ahhhhh! Sitting in the shade, the smell of grass wet from the sprinkler. Summertime :)

    1. The prior header just wasn't singing to me once in place—felt good to replace it; glad you noticed and glad you like the close-up it provides. These two starts were fun to do—first two from my almost-summer vacation. As ever, loved hearing what my painting efforts offered up to you : )
