Today I went out to count swans due to a rumor of a second death. But, all eleven were there, feeding between the islands on the west shore. It was in the mid 30's with a wind out of the SE. The eagles were soaring over the west shore. Lots of great blue herons today and a big flock of mostly widgeons and coots not far from the swans.
The first 300+ entries in this blog were from the Seattle area on the west coast of North America. Starting with October 5, 2012, my blog (and myself for that matter) has moved to Connecticut on the east coast. I have a lot to learn about my new home. I paddle solo most of the time, but I do take others on many trips. Photographs are shot from the canoe on the day of the trip. The writing is done by pencil and paper in the canoe.
I am an interdisciplinary artist creating content-driven and concept-driven artwork in a diverse selection of materials and themes with a very strong recent emphasis on nature and ecology. I was the Rubicon Foundation/Smoke Farm Artist in Residence for 2011-2012. I now live in Connecticut.
