Life has been good here in Olympia AND I miss my friends back in Sonoma County and would love to be able to make art with my Muse Group sisters again. So I did! Spared myself a flight and just sat down to my art table at the same time they were meeting in person to play with wet-on-wet painting, something which we used to do a lot together. Then I got to see them on Facetime and pretend I was there in person. It did me a world of good.
After getting stuck in the muck while kayaking in Woodard Bay the week before, I wanted to make some muck with paint. You know, like a small child will do after it rains. I started out by dropping ink onto wetted shapes and watched the fantastic landscape shapes appear. Then I mixed in some gesso to make the muck with my fingers. Mmmmm.
I’m still trying to find my footing here in my new home. But aren’t we all? We are all walking on a swinging bridge!
Boy, Susan, I sure admire you. Your courage and adventurous way to leave beautiful ( hot/ smoky) Sonoma county & move up north. I’m loving your work, your blog and hearing about your sons!
Meanwhile, I took my art journal to point Reyes & riverfront this weekend!blessings, Ann

THanks so much for your comments Ann. We’re all courageous and adventurous when the right time presents itself. Moving to a new place enhances the desire to explore! Pt Reyes and Riverfront are two of my favorites!
