The Hermitage Artist Retreat

I am at the Hermitage Artist Retreat in Manasota Keys in Florida. It is a wonderful space, great people, nice studios and living quarters. I am drinking it all in–what a blessing to be here.

The sunsets here are so gorgeous I am starting to understand wanting to paint them–the light is like Turner light–it permeates every particle of air, so one is drinking in the golds and pinks. If you painted these–I think it might seem as if you had elaborated a bit on the truth.

Of course the finest artists at work here on the beach are the baby turtles. They leave these incredibly expressive marks–you can read joy in the tracks, and haste, confusion sometimes, determination–but that might be attributing human characteristics to them…
