After about an hours journey up the Julienton and across the sound, you’ve arrived at Blackbeard.  If you’ve ever been, you know that there’s always at least one bird there to welcome you…in my case, two.

I believe this to be a close shot of “Three Clumps of Trees”…but I’ll ask the captain to make sure.

Not yet…but when the weather improves.  In the meantime, finally getting around to documenting some of our trips.

Community

March 8, 2010

During my four years at SCAD, I had the opportunity to work first hand with some of the most talented, passionate, and fearless artists on the planet.  It was such a blessing to have that community of artists to bounce ideas off of.  Upon graduation, we dispersed and crawled into our own creative holes.  This was before the time that everyone had a blog or twitter or facebook fan page, and for many of us, it was a tough transition.  Which brings me to today’s post.

There’s a new community out there, a constant source of creative thought and inspiration, that’s carrying us all through a tough economic time.  I’ve “met” some fabulous artists via a blog comment or a tweet, and there is nothing better than waking up on a Monday morning to have your work featured on another artist’s blog…(thank you Elizaveta and Pet Boutique, you made my day this morning) And even though the world-wide web can be a little saturated, it doesn’t take away that sense of community and fellowship that can be had with people of similar interest and perspective.  We are so lucky to be living in this time!

Hope you all have a lovely Monday and thanks to all of you who have found my little corner of the web, and supported it!  You mean the world to me!

Today is just one of those days.  I won’t bore you with the simple annoyances that have me a bit off kilter.  Instead, I choose to share with you my lucky find of the week.  Courtesy of Aunt Pam and her clever eye.

This mirror almost made it into Goodwill.  It’s a little dirty, but if you look close, you’ll see Miss Vayda stretching in the reflection.  Such a ham!
