Art Journal: Summer Quote

All in all, not my favorite page... but it's okay, because not every page can be my favorite page. The fun part was the creation: The fiery background was pre-painted back in may everything else was added "on-location."

If you ever visit Rhode Island, I recommend a trip to the Sakonnet Vineyards in Little Compton (go to South Shore beach afterwards!). Although everyone goes and does the tasting, I recommend something different: pack a picnic lunch, drive to the vineyard, and buy a bottle of their most popular white or red, depending on your preference.

[I heard rumors that you should bring your own corkscrew, but it wasn't busy when we were there, so we didn't need it. If you go on a weekend, you might!]

The coolest thing about Sakonnet Vineyards is that they have tables and chairs and picnic tables scattered around the grounds that you can use to have your picnic. WAY better than a tasting, which is usually crowded and kind of overwhelming.

We did our picnic, then since we had some time to kill until 5 pm (when they stop charging $14 for residents to park at the beach... crazy!), so we worked in our art journals. So this page is the result of a nice summer picnic and a few glasses of wine. Oh yeah... :)

Quote reads: "Ah, Summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it! - Russell Baker"
