Seaweed inspired thoughts

I am completing an artist fellowship at Ballinglen Arts Foundation in County Mayo, Ireland.  I have spent the last few days exploring the coastline collecting seaweed, meeting a local seaweed harvester, eating seaweed and even bathing in it!  Some words I jotted down in my sketchbook around seaweed – conceal, reveal, beautiful, resilient, cold, tenacious, delicate, salty, peppery, hidden, mysterious, green, red, brown, black, secretive, glisten, metamorphose, cold…  I plan to begin drawing inspired by these incredible plants.
