Thank you all SO much for the lovely healing comments last week - you brought tears to my eyes! THANK YOU! I am now more my normal self - back to work AND (more importantly?) back to painting! (At least in my Walking in my World sketchbook.)
A few months ago I made ( and then painted in my sketchbook) an inukshuk that I made off Bate Island in the middle of the Ottawa River. I set a little goal for myself to take photos in all seasons from the same spot and this little island is perfect. It has parking and great scenic views! I went down to the water to see if my inukshuk still stood. No. While it was gone there were numerous others - some much more elaborate so I photographed many and so far have tried to paint one for you (and my sketchbook)...
This inukshuk looks almost like he's surfing!
Last week Sophia was showing and telling us about a beaver who was staring her in the eye, no beavers for me this visit - just a big bold black squirrel at eye height on a tree!
Here are more photos of inukshuks from the river - don't be surprised if you see more painted versions here at some point! Have a great time at Paint Party Friday!!
Closest to shore...
Quite a balancing act!
Great backdrop for this one...
An inukshuk family!
How did the builder get out there without getting his/her shoes soaked? Wow!
And last - the one that started them all! My simple inukshuk from the summer when it stood alone. Now long gone or re-used...
Hope you enjoy walking in your world.
