One of the luxuries of my summer break from school is the opportunity to clean up and clean out. I spent a lot of time today digging into boxes and bags and corners, sorting and sifting. Today, as I rearranged shelving in my studio, I found a sketch book I hadn't opened since last year.
The first is a sketch looking up along the rocks near Monhegan's Dead Man's Cove, one of my favorite places to sit. There is a small rocky protrusion called "Nigh Duck" close by, covered with gulls who yack and chatter. I love their sounds across the water.
The second drawing is a coloring page I created for the Monhegan 400th celebration at the request of Moe Oberman, who was coordinating and collecting "coloring book" pages as part of the celebration.
Today was a great day, hot as blazes outside, but peaceful inside.. music, cats, progress, organization.
Thanks for looking.
