I’ve only gotten to sketch at Chenoa Manor a couple times (sometimes it’s enough to spend time just being with the animals, or listening, or writing), but it is certainly an inspiring place.  Nina is a wonderful model, as is the dead walnut tree.  Chiron the goat kept my feet warm while I painted the pigs’ dominion.

Full disclosure, I was taking more photos than making time for drawings in Nova Scotia. The landscape is breathtaking in a very Scotland way, and it made me nostalgic with foggy windy wave vibes. Maybe I’ll post some photos one of these days (many were grammed).

Today I learned that groundhogs can climb trees. I deemed this drawing finished when he stood above me, leering. I never like to be the last one at a party, so I said my goodbyes.
