After a long car ride spent playing with watercolors and pencils, am now at Sagadahoc Bay Campground

We're supposed to get rain tomorrow so while Tim writes I'll either be reading in bed or painting in the screen porch. The Art Goddess bag is in the tent along with my new Strathmore w/c journal. (Which I almost forgot to pack!! It was new and precious, and therefore in a "safe place." I had wanted to apply ground to the pages of the adventure journal, but life kept getting in the way of buying some. I'm going to paste in visual journal pages for now. And I stopped at Skidompha and paid $5 for the "Sketch!" book.


Started out as a plein air sketch..

On our last Acadia jaunt, I didn't just snap photos. I also plonked myself down on a stadium cushion perched on the edge of a ledge. I had stuffed my "everything-but-the-kitchen-sink" art goddess bag into my little osprey backpack, so I settled in and attempted to sketch the beach in pencil and watercolor. Finally finished it all these days later. LOL

Seen in Bar Harbor, painted in Blue Hill. Going to try it in gouache next, then a mix of transparent

and gouache.

Anyone with Go Fund ME experience? FIL's death benefit

might cover a third of the cost. Maybe a smidge more if the checking acct is available.

This week's work. I am doing exercises along W the 6th graders.

Third shot tomorrow. J&J, Pfizer, and now Moderna.

Was sick the first time and no reaction except a sore arm the second. Will see what this one does.

Forgot to post this year's St Paddy's Day pic, plus yesterday's drawing

I don't do people, but felt like I needed to get this one of younger son in back seat w me as

we took him to head back to Amsterdam. Ran out of time, but it still makes me smile.

And here's one of my feet, but from band class, not today.

Anyone have experience with transitioning aging parents from senior apartments to a home? Emotional

aspects as well as technical stuff? We are losing nursing homes here in Maine, and whatever Maine care and Medicare offer will have to cover my FILs stay wherever that turns out to be. He can't live on his own anymore. Two bad falls this week show that it's time.

I'm trying Naltrexone for the bulimia. Anyone experienced side effects?

Trying to decide if I should take it at bedtime in case it makes me sleepy.
