Tra-la! May in Acadia.

I had a special visual treat during this short stay at Schoodic: baby foxes!

The only thing cuter than a fox baby is TWO fox babies…

or better yet, THREE!

I worked on an unusual project this time, working with some taxidermy specimens from the Acadia curatorial collection. Many thanks to Kate and the staff at Acadia for arranging for them to migrate to my studio classroom on Schoodic!

Schoodic in May is beautiful. Cool, pleasant, open and airy since the undergrowth has not yet filled in, and still free of mosquitoes. Also, delightfully deserted for the most part. Did I mention I love it here?

I’m looking forward to returning soon. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work in Acadia.

Next stop, Bermuda for a return visit!
