small sketch of barnacles

According to Sea Grant Rhode Island, barnacles have been found on fossils more than 150 million years old. And the "cement" that barnacles use to attach themselves to surfaces is stronger than expoxy cement.

Head on over to 52 photos for more white on white.

bird watching and staying home for the summer

Usually summer means several bicycle-camping trips, but with COVID19 still around, we are staying home. In the meantime, I have been pretty productive with my 100 Self Portraits project. Watching the birds that come to the bird feeders has been my daily dose of joy. fledgling House Finch  Chestnut- backed Chickadee Dark-Eyed Oregon Junco Usually summer means several bicycle-camping trips, but with COVID19 still around, we are staying home.

Fake Journal, raincoat, letters to antigone

fake journal 2012 I love blog hopping which is how I found Roz's IFJM blog.  For the month of April, participants keep a fake journal that is outside of their regular visual journal . My mind started leaping with ideas. In the next few weeks, you'll see posts titled "Fake Journal" on my blog. I dug up this old journal that I had refused to throw away 'cuz I knew some day it would have a purpose. For the cover, I collaged one of my failed paintings and wrote a short message. I've been carting it around with me since 2008, from Japan to Mexico to California and now Washington. fake journal page one Journal : 8.25 x 5.5 notebook with kraft paper pages and blue ballpoint pen Letters to Antigone Cover : 4 x 6 140# watercolor paper, line drawing with black micron pen, monoprint tissue paper collaged onto drawing with pieces ripped off.

summer bicycle camping

View this post on Instagram Took the weekend off and did some bicycle-camping. . . #bicycle #camping #whidbeyisland #bicycletravel #bicycletrip #bicycletouring A post shared by GalleryJuana (@galleryjuana) on Aug 18, 2019 at 6:18pm PDT Above is the view from our camping trip in August.  Unfortunately, I twisted my ankle pretty badly on a morning hike, so most of this trip was spent in the tent.  Fortunately, the view above our tent was wonderful and I enjoyed just literally doing nothing.  Isn't that the meaning of taking a vacation?  The ankle was workable just in time for the bicycle ride home.  Yay:) View this post on Instagram This is from a June Nicole-camping trip at Fort Ebey State park. It’s a beautiful place to go hiking 🥾 in the woods. . . #hiking #whidbeyisland #fortebeystatepark #nature #naturewalk #hikewashington A post shared by GalleryJ
