A Loopsy Doodle from me to you…

Loopsy Doodle by Barbara Stroud

Loopsi Doodle – I learned the word from a friend, Carol Bass – a fabulous artist and person. I had posted one of my doodles on social media and she said it’s a Loopsi Doodle. I love that name! I have many of these, usually done while on the phone or mindlessly chatting.

Often times I start with the pen down and don’t lift it until I’m done. I see a break in this one, do you spot it? These are so fun, try it next time you’re on the phone!

Monhegan Sunset

Is there anything better than a sunset? Truly, we have to stop making dinner reservations during this time! I think next year we will eat pizza and take photos of the sunset! Ha ha… I run outside and snap a few as quick as I can. It’s difficult to stop, the light and colors change so quickly, illuminating yet another area in a more dramatic way then the first however many photos! I love this one with the cottage light on – adds so much charm.

This is Monhegan. Beautiful, charming and peaceful…

Catch you back here tomorrow!

Lobster Traps – Monhegan, ME

I love how these lobster traps are stacked near the brewery on Monhegan. I realize they’re there for a reason and not just to look good, but… they form a wall of the coolest kind.

Monhegan, and even Maine in general is a lot like that. Items used for form and function and not necessarily to “look good”, but they do!

Me…

Clearly this is not a photo of me. It’s Charlie, our JRT. He’s out of sorts here, normally his entire body is on his bed. Funny beast. We all have our days I suppose.

In an effort to type the minimal amount this week (hand not happy), I will be posting images this week – back to normal next week, I hope!

Enjoy your week and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow!

The Price is Right…

I love these wild palms that pop up in Charleston. They usually pop up where you don’t want them (front yard, butted up to a walkway), but on occasion they pop in the right place. This palm provides great shade as well. As it grows you have to cut the branches so that you can walk underneath it (near a walkway). The price is right, haha…

Charleston Photo – Broad Street

Broad Street

St. Michael’s Church steeple is pretty remarkable, isn’t it? Definitely an icon in our beautiful city. The well cared for palms line the street and the flag flies proudly. This is Charleston, SC!

Read a bit about Jessica, (from her website):

Jessica Leitko Fields (that’s me) is a working painter, collage gluer and general maker living in Greenville, SC.

I’m originally from, lets say, Houston, because who remembers anything from before they were five anyway. And there I garnered a love for all things flat and stripey. Add a dose of a Louisiana farm on my mother’s side and all those fields start to make sense. Then I married a Fields! Like a joke. I liked them so much I married them. 

I went to school at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design where I learned to love paint and color and texture and to really really hate snow. 

I’m typically a teacher by trade with a special fondness for art history and history in general which will crop up in my titles from time to time. 

This is my happy place. 

Catch you back here tomorrow!
