A quick sketch of me resting in town before we headed back to the beach to gather, once again, for more family fun. A bigger crowd and rain had us all packed inside, but a good time was had by all. Monday we said good bye to my brother, the rain and my headache.

The fog lifted and we had the most beautiful evening for our family lobster bake at the beach. I managed this quick sketch of Smugglers Cove after we had gathered wood for the fire and wet seaweed to steam the lobsters, mussels, clams and corn. The light was so much prettier than this, but I was not staying focused with all the festivities going on around me. The curse of the extrovert!

Here are two of the ten pages in my Maruman Exchange project called "Transitions". The four of us participating in this sketch book exchange are Nina Johansson in Sweden, Anita Davies in England and Margaret Storer-Roche and I in the US. Each of us will fill ten pages in each sketch book and send it on. I am looking forward to the day that my own Maruman lands back in Maine with the pages filled with work of these very talented artists.

I hardly ever draw with pencil because I am such an impatient scribbler and when I am out and about I get it all over everything—the drawing, my hands, my clothes...A quiet evening at home, I decided to do a pencil drawing of this basket I bought in the the low country of South Carolina filled with rocks I collected in the north country of Maine.

Not much time for anything these days, but a quick sketch while sitting on the rocks at Kettle Cove looking out towards Richmond Island. The days are so long that the sun was still fairly high in the sky at 7:30 pm.

My latest renovation is for sale so when there is a showing Sophie and I have to find things to do away from the house. Yesterday, we went to the beach. I sketched rocks and shells and Sophie rolled in the wet sand and seaweed.
