Zen Rock Doodles


“Not that she didn’t enjoy the holidays: but she always felt—and it was, perhaps, the measure of her peculiar happiness—a little relieved when they were over. Her normal life pleased her so well that she was half afraid to step out of its frame in case one day she should find herself unable to get back.”
- Jan Struther, Mrs. Miniver


Loving our late summer vacation at the beach in Charleston, RI . The crowds are gone but the weather is still sunny and warm. This home of friends has a front view of the ocean and a back view of the bay, so we get sunrise and sunset over two different bodies of water without leaving the house.

Beach rocks, washed and dried, are the perfect
substrate for doodles.



It's fun and relaxing to work on such a small canvas.

Vacation is meant for important things, like
searching out perfect rocks for doodling.


Enjoy your week, whatever you're doing!

Sounds perfect. I love the beach when the crowds are gone. Right about now I'd kill for an ocean view and a pile of stones to play with.
