took advantage of the milder climate...and the off season rate on Block Island, R.I., it's always wonderful to have a change of scenery for my painter's eye...I forgot how much I miss the sound of the ocean...

bleak kind of a day, sketching away just to cheer myself up....a few sketches later, I came up with the idea of a new set of hand painted wedding cards for Etsy...not sure who will actually see it, but the ability to create something out of nothing remains a JOY

I have a creek on my property, along with being a scenic spot, it's stock with trouts...a neighbor just drop off his catch of the day...the rainbow trout is a great fighter, a favorite among fly-fisher people
