Summer Sketches and Reconnecting with Nature

This summer has been one of exploration and travel for me.  And I am finding that through it all I am reconnecting with nature and becoming inspired to paint and draw even more.  I made myself infinitely more portable with just pencils and watercolor in my bag as we shuffled from place to place.  But the result was that I was able to search for sketching opportunities everywhere.  Here are just some of the summer sketches I have done.  

In Spain,

 In Italy,

And in Maine,

Being refreshed and so grateful to be back with my studio, it's on toward the fall and finishing up my 100 paintings!
