inspiration

so many things running through my head right now-

bought a compass rose medallion in st augustine and love the idea of it- exploring and finding the way home; finding and keeping true north; intermediate points and protection in rough waters. def more to come on this one. journal page wip-


my friend pam mcknight makes wonderful collage travel journals and i thought i'd try her method rather than feeling like i "should" draw. i'm happy with the pages below reflecting my latest trip-


i meant to draw/paint/journal on this trip, brought everything i might need :)

in the end, it was about being there. watching the gator slide thru the birds in a nwr


catching the gbh in great light at gatorland 


 the rhythm of cormorants perched in blue spring sp


texture (and gator tracks)

birds




and manatees


so inspired by what i saw- bike week in daytona was a whole different inspiration. so much mono culture and individualism at the same time. i really missed many photo opps there.

it's funny- this is not my native environment but there is absolutely something that speaks to my soul. it's gonna be fun exploring the whole compass rose symbolism, exploration traveling thing in my art. come along for the ride ;)
