4. August Was A Wild Month

IMG_5855

 

So much has happened in the month since I last posted.   The campground was super busy with our themed weekends, especially our Halloween ones!

And mid-month, Mystery of the Eagle’s Nest launched!  Over 200 people came to the campground, and sat on my front lawn to celebrate with me, my family and Islandport Press.  For a special treat, we invited Hope from Wind Over Wings to give a presentation on raptors and ravens.

Teddy – A Northern Saw-whet Owl

 

The crowd was enchanted with each and bird, and their hearts were touched by their stories and how they came to stay with Wind Over Wings.

Zachariah – Common Raven

 

Hope and Skywalker have a special bond, it was easy to see.  Sky sang to Hope, as Hope told Sky’s story on how he was shot out of the sky. He came close to death, but pulled through, only to find one wing had to be amputated.  Can you imagine being an eagle, only to find yourself grounded?

Angry, Sky turned his back on his caregivers. Literally.  It was only after much patience, love and special care on the part of Hope and her staff,  that Sky turned back to the world.

Hope with Sky – a golden eagle

 

Now he stars in many presentations each year to educate humans on the life and adventures of being an eagle.

The photo below shows Sky saluting me for my work on Mystery of the Eagle’s Nest.  I was very honored.

While my staff helped children make s’mores, and Maxwell Moose wandered around showing everyone who would listen about how he was a character in Mystery of the Eagle’s Nest, I signed books for my readers and campers and friends.

The campground was still in full swing, but I did find time for a few kayaking trips to see the loons

They are preening . . .

and gathering in preparation for their journey to the coast for the winter.

And I even caught the heron, who frequents the marshy area every Fall . . .

School has started as well, and it feels good to be back in the classroom, talking up books, and writing and helping students make the most of each and every day.  We are planning an event at the school which will include Hope, and Wind Over Wings.

Going through my photos tonight, I realized I’ve taken many, but posted few.  This is mainly due to the time involved in editing them.  But now that the campground is slowing down, I can start going through them and will be be able to post summer-time photos well into the winter months!

And you’re going to have to hear all about my research and writing ups and downs, while I tackle book 3:  Mystery of the Missing Fox!

I’ve been super excited about trying out inking since I went to Icon a week or so ago, and when I saw that Yuko Shimizu had some videos on skillshare that just came out, I had to watch them. This was the result; it was super fun to work with ink, quick but… MESSY. My hands are covered, hah!

6. The Owl and the Pussycat



Hi there, remember me? I hope you're having a good summer, mine is off to a flying start. 
I'll just pop in here occasionally, but if you want to know about me on a regular basis, I seem to be more of an Instagram person . I don't know why ; less commitment, instant pictures, I kind of like documenting everyday things, processes and experiments. I don't even have a phone, so no pictures from "the field", but stop by and check it out! (follow the link in the sidebar).
As usual, summer is dominated by art camp, so check back for a look at the creative work of little people later this week.

The image below is my submission for the "nautical wall art"assignment this month.

It helped to have a story/poem to connect it too, my ideas were all over the place. I like the topic though, I'll be doing some more drawings in a "nautical vein".
Click here to see the other submissions in the bootcamp gallery - amazing stuff!

8. Cat Blobs and Doodles

I'm finally back in France after a wonderful two week holiday, and it's taking me ages to get back into the 'routine' and catch up on stuff, and e-courses. I'm working on the text design for next month's newsletter at the moment, but apart from that haven't had the chance to do any new art really, though I'm full of ideas after the trip to Istanbul, that I hope will eventually make it out into the light of day.

Meanwhile however, remember the Cat Blobs that I drew last month? I did get around to creating a pattern out of them, though it still needs a bit of further re-fine-tuning. And I have some doodles that were hidden in the moleskine sketchbook that might not mind being shown off ...

 

Cat-Blobs-by-Floating-Lemons

Sharing-Caring-by-Floating-Lemons

Bees-by-Floating-Lemons

Sleepy-Cats-by-Floating-Lemons

 

I'd really like to create some patterns from those bees, and I'm not quite sure what I'll do with the Sharing is Caring bear and owl, or the sleepy cats, but as I'm quite fond of them I'm sure they'll get improved on and worked into something in the near future.

Now it's time to start catching up on two weeks worth of my e-course! Wishing you wonderful learning experiences. Cheers.

10. Owl Sighting In My Own Backyard

Owl - Mar 7 (3)

Right at dusk . . . with a pink sunset fading behind him, the owl swooped into our backyard.

Owl - Mar 7 (7)

Unlike the other day, when I’d caught a sleepy owl around 3pm, this one was quite active.  He almost didn’t look real, as his head swiveled from side to side looking for an early supper.

Owl - Mar 7 (10)

We watched until we couldn’t see him through the darkness any more.

Owl - Mar 7 (11)

Oh, how I wished he’d shown up earlier so the pictures were clearer.  Still, I was honored by his visit.

Now I can’t stop looking out my back window, hoping for signs of his return.

19. Owl Belly Cast Finished

The painted owl belly cast is finished! I sculpted the flower from scratch (it's not a flower dipped in plaster) and am quite happy about how sturdy it feels, never having done sculpture before. The belly looks so beautiful, so amazing! The even more amazing part is when my doula, Suzanne Moquin (of Gentle Touch Birth Services), came for a visit today to help present it to the new mom, touched the cast and could feel how the baby had been positioned inside her body- where the bum and where the head was. So ridiculously amazing. What a way to capture your pregnancy, hey? Can hardly wait to get these casts professionally photographed!

20. the things that i will do

In quite a few of my drawings I have used notes, letters, lists and bits of paper, that other people have written on, as subject matter. Sometimes they are the scribblings of strangers but more often than not they are people that I know. I have no idea if anyone else does such things (do you?), but what I've found is that copying somebody else's handwriting is really really difficult. It almost always ends up looking like my own.

In this note, from my niece, I tried to do something different. I copied the writing but did not look at the page I was drawing onto. I looked only at her writing as I blindly copied it onto the paper. Although it's not an exact replica there are moments where I captured it. It was quite a nice little exercise actually. I think I may try more of it. Give it a go!
