I’d say I’ve been busy, but actually these are all small studies I’ve done over time. It’s a pleasure to compose with rolling waves, rocky shorelines, and clouds forming on the horizon. Sometimes having something beautiful, calm and peaceful is just the thing to kick off a weekend.
Anybody who knows me, knows that parks tend to be places near and dear to me. As a girl, I watched my dad work to get a park built for our community, Edwardsville Park, in little Edwardsville, Indiana. As an adult, I spent nearly a decade as park engineer for a major urban park system, Cincinnati Parks. Trust me, spring and fall are both awesome times to get out and spend a day in a park. Words like fresh, crisp, vibrant and of course colorful come to mind to describe these times. Sometimes, when I’m lucky enough, the place that sparks these words is Mt. Desert Island. Each time I visit, I’m absolutely swept off my feet by how amazing it is. The art I’m working on this week happens to be inspired by and headed to Mt. Desert Island. Here’s a sneak preview.
