I started the new year off taking an online workshop with Roxanne Evans Stout - found the class on a facebook journaling page. I have wanted to incorporate stitching into my art for a while and this was a good place to take that leap-
I started 5 books. The rest are languishing in the studio. My goal is to finish them this year. :)
There was a month at home. Sometime in December til January 10. My first trip of 2014 was vacation- a good omen- to the central California coast to see the elephant seals. What an amazing trip!
My friend Pamela invited me after our Driggs Swissy weekend in October. I showed her what I love about Jackson and she told me about the seals and invited me to come visit. What a gift!
I love this guy- he looks like a happy sea monster to me
here's how a male seal looks not zoomed in- beautiful coastline-
this shot is immediately after the pup was born- scale provided by the seagull (who is looking for tasty afterbirth)
pup and male
fam on the beach- and yes, they're loud!
got some great bird shots too-
My resolution for 2014 is to be kinder to myself- I plan to blog more often, and to focus more on my art- but photos are art and where and what I see I go informs art down the road......
