My landscape this summer is my studio/office window. It’s a wonderful but small view and has me painting small things. When January gives us a foot of snow, these small things may seem a lot bigger.
I finally caught a glimpse of high summer as I sped home from craft fair yesterday afternoon. The crops at Earth Sky Time community farm in Manchester, VT are thriving but also reminding me how quickly the summer is getting away.
From the attic window I can see Little green apples getting ready to be edible, if somewhat ugly and scarred , green apples. The worms will have surely decided that a few apples are already too good to pass by, but they always leave plenty for us.
Work’s been keeping me inside for most of the daylight hours this summer samosa the landscapes I’m drawing are of the aquarium or in my head. This one was inspired by a collection of flowers and critters I did a couple years ago for a show.
We have plenty to do. The yard has been professionally neglected all summer, but still with everybody in the family home for once, we felt like we should look for something to do.
That’s how we found ourselves driving through The rolling hills of Washington County, New York. Thing1’s driving did nothing for my painting skills, but it did wonders for my creative spark.
Suddenly I can’t wait to get back in the studio.
