A Walk in the Woods

 Hi Friends, 

Today officially marks a week of being at Hambidge, I am so glad I have another four left! I feel like I am really just getting going. I did a few drawings this week that were completely new to me. At first I was really excited about them, but then realized I wasn't having as much fun doing them as when I was painting, or using color...more on that tomorrow. I have done so much since my last post and I was going to try and cram it all in to one post.  Now that I'm looking at my images though, I think it might be a bit too much for just one. So, I will continue to keep you all on the edge of your seats until tomorrow night. For now I will share with you a few more images of my surroundings. I went on a wonderful hike today, it was so nice being all alone in the woods. I could hear all of the noises that nature has to offer, until I started singing the theme song to the Dukes of Hazzard...which was nice in it's own right. I've been overthinking a lot of things (as I tend to do) and a walk in the woods was just what I needed to try and let all of those thoughts go. 

The last photo is of the bird I mentioned in my last post that is nesting outside my house, the photo doesn't show it, but he's pretty big! After my walk/hike I felt great! I went back to the studio and began a large painting that I'm pretty excited about. More on that tomorrow. 

Also, Hambidge has a pretty intense and diverse environment. Check here to read all about what the mountains of Georgia have to offer, and why I'm a little afraid to walk home right now (it's 10:30, extremely dark, and there are BEARS in these parts!)  

I hope you are all doing well, and thanks for reading!

Thanks for the update! By the way, that's not a bird, it's a pterodactyl.

Doppler says hi and gives a special warning to crouch down and hide when big birds fly overhead.
