Happy New Year!!!

Our last full day here - tomorrow we'll be in transit, with maybe time for one last vacation sketch to close out the year. If I don't post before midnight tomorrow, Happy 2012!

Backlit against the bright window - my father reading his book.

Hills, near and far.

We seem to have internet access again - perhaps the ISP was taking a nap? In any case, this was drawn and painted last night in the dark, listening to the wind, children laughing, and the two-tone chirp of the coqui frogs.
The internet service where I'm staying seems to have decided to take its own vacation. I'm still drawing, but if I can't figure out how to fix it, it may be a couple of days before I can be online consistently to post here. Thanks for your patience!

Looking up...

I could look at clouds all day...

Thinking about the texture of stones along the water's edge.

Near sunset, viewed from the back yard where we are staying.

Down the road from us.

Just visible from our window.

Thinking about stillness. Smoothness. Rest. (Listening to wind and frogs, among other noises in the night.)

From the balcony, just before sunset.

Vacation - we've scarcely arrived and already I'm feeling beautifully relaxed.

Enjoying the Christmas smell of pine in the house. We'll be traveling tomorrow.

Vacation! (Eating pistachio nuts and thinking about plans for the holiday.)

I think this tool was brought to you by the letter A.

Practicing is over, yet somehow the music stand is in the living room.

The warmest spot on a cold night.

If I keep putting clementines in the bowl on the coffee table in the living room, people keep eating them.

This is the boot that went missing under the bed.

One branch of the ancient ficus tree in our dining room. I've had it since just before graduate school. It recovers and thrives outside in the summer, and then sulks and loses leaves inside in the wintertime.

Still life in the kitchen this evening.

I imagined waves of tissue, breaking on the rocky shore.

The kind of rubber band that's already been wrapped in colored thread.

Clementine peel archipelago on the table after supper.

This certainly looks like a shoe.  It's a pencil case, though.

One crystal bead on a string.

Bright and minimal.

One of a pair of lapis and silver earrings.
