Island Spring Sunset
(Nature Studies series)
9″ x 12″ ink, pencil & paint on paper. 2014.
This original mixed media artwork on heavy watercolor paper showcases every insect and bloom myself and a friend encountered one May afternoon hiking up to the top of Point Disney on Waldron island to enjoy the sun setting behind Stuart island. Succulents, delicate lady slippers, western starflowers, chocolate lilies, wild honeysuckle, camas, buttercups, and one more whose name I forget. I hiked this trail many times the year I lived on this island, it was different each time.
