A trip to South Carolina near Charleston amazed me with it's wildlife and wetlands. Such an abundance of species in so many categories. We were fortunate to experience the dolphins strandfeeding , seeing oyster beds as part of miles and miles of river landscape. And Live Oak trees and moss throwing out there long huge arms as if welcoming anyone passing.
Entering the studio after returning from this vacation will take several days to ground myself as a result of such a wonderful and dramatic distraction .
I usually resolve that with putting large sheets of white craft paper on the easel and drawing out whatever comes to mind.
Another helpful technique is having Twyla Tharps' book ; "The Creavie Habit" as a reminder of how to remain on task.

This blog is too important to draw or talk about drawing and painting. We have officially achieved EGG! One of our 6 hens has dropped this jewel to announce a tasty and nutritious winter ahead. Nature rules! Living things are such a mysteriously magnificent piece of work . And reverence prevails.
