Learning to Count to One

Camino de Santiago de Compostela, Finesterre, 2018

Miniature studies on centering from the field.  Just "pissing away the afternoon not hurting anyone" as Henry Miller liked to say when doing something similar.  Most are 4" x 6" on watercolor paper, some are 9 x 12, as indicated.
