Mapping this moment

I haven’t done a map in a while. I decided to post one for the call for artists for the ‘They Draw and Travel’ Blog. They requested that artists submit a map that records this moment in time. Art in the time of COVID-19.

I decided to map our morning walk. We are fortunate to live in Florida in a less densely populated area. Lock down meant not being able to go the beach but we could take neighborhood walks.

Our morning started out in our circle which looped a little over a mile. We lapped it three times before we started to get bored so we started to leave the circle and we love our walks and all the creatures we see. We’re always exited when we see something new. Currently, plumerias are blooming and there are these umbrella shaped trees with the most gorgeous flowers.

We see many of the same people, some are recorded on the map.

And if you look carefully, there is an aquatic ‘map monster’ in the neighborhood who has grown since last year.

A word of caution for non Floridians; ALWAYS assume a body of water has a gator.

Day 20 #30Pages30Days Today we went to Denny’s for breakfast. It’s my father-in-law’s 89th birthday and he wanted to celebrate with his friends, and get his free breakfast, lol.

This sketchbook is the #Leichtturm1917 I used my Uniball pen and Peerless watercolors. The Leuchtturm1917 is not wet work friendly but I have been making it work.
