“Just jump in” Debi Riley said, and I did.
Sketches from the Edgartown wharf:
followed by a porch concert at the Island Inn
and then in the evening a magically silly night in Oak bluffs: dining out a la fresco, riding the flying horses (I got a ring every revolution but missed the prize), and eating ice-cream while watching the lights on the harbor. Maybe these images will emerge in later paintings. Sorry-No photos or paintings for now.
Sketching in watercolor while perched on a rock amid the tide drift on Katama Bay:
and then from the steps of a wharf in the cool morning fog.
Later in the heat of the day viewing the work of so many artists island wide. I especially liked the work of Colin Ruel below:
He works in acrylics on birch plywood using water and spray and with a deep empathy for the islands.
Galleries, galleries, galleries -so much beautiful art work and so inspiring!
Then in the afternoon at South beach and the airport:Sitting on the edge of the sand and finally unable to resist the giant waves I just had to get my feet wet-Oops
And the Atlantic has a pair of prescription transitional glasses to turn into sea glass.Now my whole world is a water-color blur.
And still, I can do (sort-of) a little sketch of the house in Edgartown where I stayed.
The child in me is so very grateful-thanks friend.
I’m fit and fine
-at any time
