Wayward hemlock branches —knocked loose by winter storms— inspire as they emerge within melting, woodland pools. Here and there, bits of the past glimmer in sunlight.

Field Notes & Sketchbook Pages

Michaela Harlow, Field Notes from the Sketchbook, Pastel and Graphite A trio of early morning sketches from my notebook (15″ x 12″ on handmade paper/click to enlarge)

As these late winter days grow longer and warmer, I find myself lingering out doors. I cherish early morning walks through the forest; watching the sky light up, all peach-pink-fuchsia between tree trunks along the ridge line.

I’m constantly sketching and making photos, but these days I rarely post pages from my notebook. Most of the time, I upload images to Instagram, Twitter or on my Facebook profile. App editing tools on my iPhone make it so much easier to crop and watermark images, but writing is still something I prefer to do on my laptop. I’m going to try to get better about sharing them here on the journal. We’ll see how long that resolution lasts once things get really busy!
