prismacolor pencils on stick
it seems more like three decades than three weeks since i last posted... i've drawn on a lot of sticks, stones and rusty stuff since then! we had a great, busy time
and we walked so much!
my sister, carole
on trails around here,
near mill creek falls
in eastern california,
and on the coast. carole had a pedometer so i know that we walked 8 - 10 miles several times, and 4 - 6 miles per day *many* times. surely my leg muscles are stronger than they've been in years!
me on a driftwood log, 'big lagoon' off hwy. 101, northern california
we walked and walked...
pacific ocean near crescent city, CA
and saw a lot of these - plural!
a western red cedar not far from here...

the large mossy shape on the left is a redwood stump... my favorite thing about being with the redwoods is that everyone marvels over and loves trees in their presence...
around here we started two new shrine trees...
we did so much, saw so much; i think there were two days out of 21 when we just kicked back and rested. and did laundry.
carole and me
on our way back from the coast we visited roxanne, who took this pic. we were modeling our new scarves for her - and roasting, lol!
i printed out a a bunch of pogo prints; i completely filled up the 'daily book' i was working in.
albrecht durer watercolor pencils in stillman and birn gamma, 4" x 6"
and i drew a lot of these beings; i just keep drawing them and drawing them!
the day after she left i went out walking, but instead of taking colored pencils (for drawing on sticks, etc.) i took my daily book and watercolors. i finished decorating all of the pogo print pages that were left and have started in a new book...
thank you to *everyone* who left kind comments to my last post - i appreciate them! i wish you all a beautiful fall (or spring, as the case may be). here the fall light is so incredibly beautiful now - i just want to be out in it as much as i can...
