When I need a little breath, and maybe some inspiration, I head up to Mount Agamenticus in York County Maine...I can see the mountain from my inland home from fall until the full spring bloom...and it's only about a 30 minute drive for me to get there.
The top of the mountain offers walking & hiking trails, stunning views on all sides...views of the coastline & the mountain ranges all the way to New Hampshire and little glimpses of lakes and structures around the area and an endless sea of trees....but for me, it's the colors and textures that always capture me...an ever changing feast of leaves, branches, blooms and bugs in various states of decay and birth.
Capturing what I see and feel and sharing it eludes me....and so it keeps me captivated with the challenge of bottling it up for keeps. And so begins my annual spring art obsession with Aggie.
