I don’t travel very often, though I have been to some pretty interesting places. I’m leaving in less than an hour to go to Iceland for a week, with my daughter. She found a cheap flight and invited me to come along — who wouldn’t? While thinking about trips, I thought about a trip my family took to the seashore, when I was young. Sometimes the wind would blow in scores of jellyfish.
“How beautiful they are,” we said. “How lovely their purple translucence, floating in the lacy green sea!”
Except that we didn’t say that. We didn’t say that at all. I can say it now, though, when I’m painting them.

A friend just came back from Iceland and loved it. First time in ages it’s remotely affordable so smart to go! Enjoy! Love your jelly pic!!
thanks! (it was a good trip.)
Thanks for sending/posting. Love your drawings.
thanks for reading/looking, Loraine!
If you ever have a chance, go to the aquarium in Monterey, California, which has a most astonishing array of what are properly called “jellies.” We also just saw a much smaller but no less astonishing exhibit at the aquarium in Chattanooga, Tenn. Happy travels to Iceland!
I think an aquarium sounds like the ideal place to see them.
How I remember them and what we really said. So glad we can see things through eyes of wonder and appreciation of all life now. Part of getting older???
and from a distance 🙂
Just lovely and rich in Emotion and color….in your case, emotion = color!
