Monhegan Sketchbook and Coloring Page

 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.


  1. Your day sounds wonderful, Jody!! I now feel like coloring too!

    1. I think a lot of adults are rediscovering coloring. I can still recall the exciting scent of a fresh Crayola box of 64.
