back again

it seems like forever since i'e posted. time flys by too fast! i've been working on finishing a few pieces i had in progress... i got a new camera i'm still trying to it just me?? or does it take a technology degree to learn all the bells and whistles on these things? gone are the days when you could buy a camera and just pick it up and use it., i so cannot keep up with all the new;s starting to make me feel very old....;-)
anyway...i digress....
i feel very fragmented these days... too many things to do that take me away from doing things i want to do...i guess most of us are in that boat.....
so i;ll just leave soem new photos...adn get back to work..

grand isle

went to deliver *paupiere* this morning to the grand isle Art show... i hadn't been there since the storms.... more sighs. signs of destruction, MORE dead trees, lots of reconstruction. i guess the usual sites one sees down here. we had a wonderful afternoon walking along the beach, taking photos. these are some that my dh, cliff, took. while i have finally gotten the hang of downloading photos without zoombrowser i have also temporarily misplaced my camera battery charger! so can't download mine YET...
storing up inspiration for the next batch of new work while the weather is gorgeous. it won't be long till it's too hot and humid to even attempt to go outside. part of the fun today was the butterfly escort that accompanied us down the beach!.. everytime i looked up there were 2 or 3 little mostly black with a little bit of vivid orange butterflys just ahead of us... fun!

more signs of spring!

taken over the past weekend at a retreat near here. i had a wonderful time being outisde ...took photos and did sketches.... but came home sick....i've slept more in the last few days than in the last month! here are a few sketches from the weekend as well....

the 2 little dots on the bottom left of the pond
sketch are my bad attempt at capturing the gator that poked his little head up while i was sitting and sketching.... he was a little one.....
but not long after i sketched this, as the sun was
setting and it was getting very quiet out there, we did hear a few very low very loud *thwumps* that let us know the gators were having their dinner.....
