'Counting Sheep'. 5x7. Pastel Karen Margulis
We were up at 5 am. The goal was to make the 2 hour drive to Mount St Michel before the crowds. It was worth the early morning wake up call. We didn't have it all to ourselves but the crowds definitely started pouting in as we were finished touring. It was a wonderful sight although some in the group said it used to be more dramatic before the causeway was built.
After our visit we drove to a spot that had a view of Mont St Michel in the distance. It was the perfect spot for a picnic and a quick painting. Stan gave us an assignment. We were to do a quick painting using only six sticks of pastel. I got so caught up in the moment that I forgot the assignment and used 8 sticks!
Tomorrow is another day around the house. We will paint in the morning and visit Omaha Beach and Bayeuux in the afternoon.
