A couple of miscellaneous distractions ... just little scenes I work on for a couple of minutes when I'm taking a break from working: dabbling. The top one is the Delaware Bay, near my house, and the bottom is the beach in North Wildwood, looking south to the boardwalk.
Today, taking a longer break, I worked on this scene of Plaza Blanca in New Mexico; this is the formation and from the same angle that O'Keeffe painted it. In mine the opening between the two rocks is wider, and so has less of the pleasing tension of OK's
, but it was just a sketch: I want to do it again--maybe larger, with more striations, texture in the rocks.

Across the pond an echo
tried and tried to confirm it.
