Is there a more welcome sight
when you've been without power for 4 days?
It all seems a distant memory now
but it was only a few weeks ago... in March.
everything was crystallized the next morning......and the poor trees.
They took a beating from the freezing rain & snow.
We had to cut a few branches,
but they've bounced back since then.
now this feels better, doesn't it?
footprints in the sand...
sand that isn't completely frozen anymore!
and the iced ocean slowly turning to water again...
This was taken at the Shediac wharf nearby...
a hotspot here during the summer months.
water - not ice.
Another welcome sight here come spring...
soon, this pier will be lined with fishermen & women...
and on those benches - hard core coffee drinkers. ;-)And of course, there's always art.
a rough water-colour of a pinecone,
found in the back yard (after all the snow melted)see the view outside?
very little snow left on the ground.
It's been a long fucking winter...
a few outlines with a brush marker
and at first i thought i'd use the tiny dot technique to add shadow...
but then i added darker water-colour over the dots instead.
i seem to have less patience than i used to have
when i was younger. ;-)
a bit of writing, and a closeup
of this beautiful pinecone.
I'll be posting again later this weekend, probably Sunday.
There are things & ideas i wanna share with you
about Sketchbook Skool.
i am having so much fun so far,
although i knew i would before it even began.
It's basically all about making time to sketch, isn't it?
About recording a life.
Keeping little snippets of your life on paper...
about keeping an art journal
so that you remember this life later on.
At least for me, that's what it's about.
So i'll be back to this space
sometime during the weekend.
In the meantime,
be kind to one another.
