This past week we rented a cabin the White Mountains with my stepson and his family. Our cabin was right on the lake. We had our own dock and a huge deck overlooking the water. The temperature never got higher than 82, which was such a blessing for Mickey. We got up at dawn every morning, grabbed our coffee, sat out on the deck and watched the world wake up before our eyes. I felt more at peace than I have felt in months.
I brought a small amount of art supplies with me and managed to get some art in every day. I did a page in my art journal, practiced my lettering and rediscovered photography. Of course it helps when you have beautiful scenery and people you love to photograph, but I started remembering about composition - the rule of thirds - and making sure that every picture told a story (didn't Rod Stewart have an album with that title?). I found myself falling in love with the camera all over again.
I hope to blog more consistently now, sharing my art and maybe a little bit of life along the way.
