Sketches of Life

On the way down to Bradenton, Florida, I spent the night at Homosassa Springs Resort, on the river that Winslow Homer fished and painted.  This is the view of Monkey Island from their restaurant.

I've said it before:  Take your sketchbook with you to record your journey, your experiences, the things that impress and delight you.  Maybe the sketches will someday be translated to paintings; maybe, not.  No matter.  Concentrating your attention for 20 minutes on your surroundings is what being alive is all about.
