An Illustrated Journal of Four Seasons in Solitude
by Local Artist/Author, Barbara Bash
This is a new and expanded edition which includes 16 pages of drawing exercises - "A Way to Begin". In this colorful journal, writer-illustrator Barbara Bash has re-created her chronicles of meditation and contemplative wandering during a series of solitary country retreats. Combining journal notes in calligraphy watercolor-and-pencil drawings, she captures exquisite moments of magic in the natural environment: a dragonfly's brief pause, a surprised deer in tall grass, a lumbering skunks visit, the woods at twilight. Nature lovers, gardeners, and anyone who enjoys the rich solitude of the natural world will recognize in Barbara a kindred spirit and find hours of pleasure in these pages.
