Here’s a pen-and-ink drawing of the Cabin at Platte Clove that I made while sitting on the weeds along the trail. Since the cabin dates from the 1860s, I was trying to channel Arthur Denison. The experience of living and working in the wilderness definitely influenced my vision of Dinotopia in Journey to Chandara.
If there are professional artists or writers among you who are interested in learning more about the summer artist residency program at the cabin, check out http://catskillcenter.org/programs/arts/arts.html.
Each artist or writer gets to stay a week for free, supported by the generosity of the members of the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development.
