Event description

Description

Take some time to look at nature like an artist, slowly and with joy while supporting the Mary Lake Nature Sanctuary project.

Joanne Thomson is a full-time artist and is very good at taking annoying slow walks in wooded areas. She uses these walks to gather sketches for her paintings and drawings.

On these special Sunday Mary Lake walks she welcomes you to join her. If you are also easily distracted by beauty large and small, the pace of this walk will be just right.

Vistas are wonderful, and the view across the water is inspiring, yet on the way there is so much more. Joanne will talk about looking at the forest as an artist does as we experience the small wonders at Mary Lake: water drops, mosses, old snags, young trees, leaves, ferns, birds, mushrooms, cones, fungi, and more.

We will wander the woods with viewfinders and talk about what we see, sharing our discoveries. Joanne will talk about how to select images that can easily work for 2D paintings.

Please leave your cameras in your bags for the return walk and try the escorted walk using only your eyes to record what you see.
