Right now I'm on my yearly painting retreat in Maine. 7 days of art - IMAGINE! We only have to worry about what's for dinner one night each, and we do housekeeping the morning we leave. It's a love fest, and a week of intense sharing of news in the art world, techniques, art history and ideas.
On the road to the nearest lighthouse is a beekeeper who sells her wares from her porch. She lines up different sized jars with a 'honey bee bear' on the railing. Against the house are the butterflies she makes and sells. I look forward to this still life every year. And the light coming through that honey - BAM!
