I’ve been plotting out a series of pieces and am started in on the skies and basic layouts for them. Sifting through photographs to jog my imagination has been a great help, since the skies on Exploits are a little different from the ones I find on the Avalon Peninsula. The clear nights are deeper and have more texture and the sunny days are bluer and richer somehow. Painting them requires a different touch of paint on fabric and different drying conditions, as well as a preemptive plan as to how the resulting fabric will be layer, stitched or otherwise manipulated to capture this depth.

Your passion for that little island is something else! Good to see it!
You’ll have to come out some time and see it. There are two (or rather four, when I get around to listing them) geocaches there!
great star trails and night sky, MJ
