Waking up for four days on the Atlantic was so relaxing and peaceful. I keep traveling back to the memory and creating a perfect meditative place. I find it is a necessity to create a calming place to escape the increasing toxicity of our world. A few moments of peace and I am ready to face the next hurdle.
Playing around in my art journal. I had started the page gluing the word ‘connections’ and playing with some paint. I then started browsing older sketches and came across a black-napped oriole I had met at the zoo years ago. So he became my model. Orioles symbolize friendship and I thought it fitting for the theme. Who knows what else will end up on the page?
