Here are a couple watercolor sketches that I began on the weekend while in Fire Island, and finished last night.
And an excerpt from a text I sent to a friend, regarding a particular mission while I was out on the island:
Twice this day I’ve filled my pockets with soft sea-rounded stones for our purpose. I think there will be a glut, so I will edit them, size- and shape-wise, over coffee in the morning.
She has a board game called Mancala; a game of simple play but infinite possibilities, strategy-wise. It uses a simple board of hollows, through which players move the 48 pieces. Hers is a fine wooden board, but came with un-pretty, too-large, weird hued marbles. So I volunteered to collect sea stones of more appropriate size— and lovelier for being from the raw outdoors.

I love that game and have a funny story to share with you. Remind me, please. 🙂
Tell me soon!
