During the time I'll be there (October 14-31), I'll be focused on immersing myself in the world of Acadia and in my art. Observing, exploring, sketching, creating, painting. I can hardly wait! I'll also be working with the public (school children, I think) for an hour or so each week, sharing my love for nature and art, something I always love doing.
I am so very thankful to the Schoodic Institute and Acadia National Park for this incredible opportunity, and a big thank you also goes to my friends and family who encouraged me to apply. I feel so honored to have been selected, and I am eager to serve the park and the public with my art. I've already purchased a book on plein air painting at the park-- Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island Plein Air Artist Guide-- and have been perusing the book and counting the weeks and months until I can start roaming the park, sketchbook in hand.
