I’ve kept a little secret.
I am proud to announce a phenology art project that I have been working on for one year has completed today on August 8, 2010. What is phenology? Phenology is the study of the seasons and how it affects plants and animals. To better appreciate what happens each week in nature, I decided to document the changes through detailed descriptions and a watercolor sketch at one location only.
You would not believe the amount of great info I’ve learned in 52 weeks.
I would like to share that information by unveiling a new website I’ve started called, Weekly Sketcher. Each week’s hike is schedule to publish on the day I discovered it one year later. The first one will publish next weekend.
Why did I not publish it as I went? Well, the location is a very public place and I wanted to remain anonymous. I learn best by myself, alone. Growing up as an only child has trained me that way, I guess.
Each week will contain a watercolor picture, description of the sights, smells, and sounds, and a GPS location so you can find that very location if you choose.
Please visit www.weeklysketcher.com to experience a year at the Little Red Schoolhouse Nature Center. You can sign up to receive an email update once a week if you would like, on the side bar of the site.
Thank you for sharing in this exciting adventure!
