Sketchbook – Part 1

I’ve filled quite a few sketchbooks with ideas over time and thought I’d share some of my drawings, collages, and scraps of creative thought over the next few blog posts.

Going To The Woods

It seems for me, that any trip which involves adventure in the outdoors is a sure way to find creative inspiration. A recent 5 day backcountry trip in the Porcupine Mountain Wilderness with my husband was no exception. This was a much needed trip away from life schedules and instead following the rhythm of the wild. I always enjoy the transformation within that happens as days on the trail accumulate. Worries, noise, faces, voices, songs that fill my mind start to slowly fade and are replaced with the beat of crickets, rush of streaming water, and call of loons. Clarity is heightened, beauty is greater appreciated, and it is in the wilderness that my path becomes clearest.
