All week I've been gazing at the ocean. Plenty of other stuff was happening in this house: tons of creative work, critiquing, much laughter, good meals and companionship. Meanwhile, people were dropping like flies. It wasn't the you-know-what, thank goodness. But we did pick up some sort of super-contagious 24-hour cold/flu, and more than half of us succumbed. Ugh.
From my seat on the sunporch, I saw the colours of the water and sky change dramatically hour by hour. Not one of my sketches even came close to capturing those beautiful moods. But here are a couple, anyway.
