Spring Sprung At Pier Park

This young man is fishing at Pier Park, he and a number of others. I asked what they were catching--Rock bass and bluegills. Note the sailboats behind him, in the distance, another sign of spring. It was actually a hot summer-like day yesterday--cooler today. I was away again all day--will try to get caught up soon. I missed my poetry reading though, but I am behind in the Moleskine Exchange group I'm in and need to paint paint paint paint to get caught up with that.

Here are some of my new art pieces:

I did this with a Tom Jones video in my water media class. Click them to view larger.

And here are two tiny little quick sketches:

In my personal small Moleskine

and finally, here is an illo for a new poem I wrote:

"THE SNIPE HUNT" by Mary Stebbins Taitt (click image to view larger.)

The poem is here, if you wish to see it. The illo combines two previous illos in a digital composit.

Thanks so much, Rose! :-D

SORRY everyone I'm so far behind!

And I have so much to do. (I may have to quit blogging for real!)

The art pieces are awesome. Your sketches are beautiful. Don't worry about running behind, it's a natural state of being for me. :)

Thanks, Pamela. I am am way behind on a couple important things, so no time for blogging until I get caught up--but hopefully, I will try.
