Retreat in the Woods

I spent 4 days last week with 3 of my girlfriends in a cabin in the woods on the coast of the Blue River in southeastern Oklahoma.  We left home with summer weather and returned with autumn weather which is way overdue.

It was a wonderful trip.  We rested, ate, drank, talked, read, and took it easy.  We sat outside for long periods of time by a campfire that continuously burned.

The sky at night was gorgeous.  It looked like a black blanket with sparkling diamonds accenting it.  Even though I live rural, I did not realize how much light pollution I had at home. The night sky was outstanding!!

When I took a break from reading, I drew the above Zentangle inspired art composed of Paradox, Squid, Tipple, and Isochor.  I used black Sharpie pens with medium and fine points and a black Micron 01 pen.  As you can see, I still have a way to go on proper shading.  It is always a work in progress.
