A weekend in Northeast Harbor

Friday—drive to Northeast—Sunny.
Saturday—FOGGY ALL DAY.
Sunday—drive back to Portland—Sunny.

We stayed at a friend's summer home on top of a hill overlooking Northeast Harbor on the left and Southwest Harbor on the right on beautiful Mt Desert Island. The fog rolled in on Friday night as I started to sketch while we grilled fish and sipped Prosecco.

Having breakfast in their wonderful country kitchen before starting out to enjoy a day in the fog.

Back home resting from a busy weekend.

Thanks for taking us on the trip, too. I feel like your dog after a busy fun weekend.

I love the 'banded' backgrounds (I don't know if there is a 'correct' name for them). I have never seen this done before and am mightily impressed with the effect!

I had to smile at your sunny days on the way and going back. Typical, eh?! I love your art here--such a journal feel to it all. Love the strips of color interspersed here on these pages.

Sounds like a beautiful time, and the sketches are great--I love the variety of techniques here and the unfussy, straightforward way you use them.
