Taking a Break

I have taken a week off from the studio in order to entertain my granddaughter while her parents were in Mexico.  She has been taking an art class and I can't wait to see what she has been working on.  We have also been to the movies a couple of times and swimming.  All in all, it has been a fun week.

In between all of this, I have been working on the Botanical Garden photo contest.  I was pleased with my last outing and here are a few of my favorites:

Lighthouses

I really enjoyed our lighthouse tour.  We saw about half the lighthouses in Narraganset Bay and I am looking forward to seeing the rest.  Here is what you get to see:

Baby Gulls

Here is a question for you:  Have you ever seen a baby sea gull?  I am not talking about the immature ones that are big and brown, but babies.  Well I had never seen one until Saturday.  I was on a boat trip to see the southern lighthouses in Narraganset Harbor.  We saw about eight light houses, including the one that wasn't there any more on Whale Island.  These are about half the ones in Rhode Island.  Our last stop was Rose Island and I would like to return there and spend more time.  This is where we saw the baby herring gulls.





We found out that the reason you don't see babies is that they are hatched on islands.  Now if we can see a baby pigeon....

Evolution of Art

Sometimes art comes easy.  I just finished up on this piece and I although I stared at it for a few days it just felt done.  







I was trying to make it simple and with geometric shapes.  


And then I added just a few things.  Done!

Happy Fourth

Happy Fourth of July on the third.

Here are a few pictures of a photo trip I took to George's Island and Fort Warren in Boston Harbor last weekend.  Aside from defending the harbor, Fort Warren had many uses including a prisoner of war encampment during the Civil War.  It is now used for recreation, one of the many nice things happened as a result of the Big Dig.
