On the outside [grain bins edition]...

I held my breath...

until about this point...

On the inside...

On the inside, looking out...

On the grid...

I fell off the grid last week. It wasn't intentional, but it was much needed. The kids and I spent the week visiting family and being bums. We stayed at the Roeder Resort [our Aunt Susan's house] which has a pool, lots of good treats, and a fabulous hostess who has a knack for spoiling people. The internet was being fickle, so I used it as an excuse to lay off social media and just be lazy for a week. It was nice. The kids swam enough for a whole summer.  I did a lot of sketching, and even more eating of the cookies.

These few sketches are from the week:

But now we're back, and I'm trying to blog with a baby fussing at me, all the while picturing that wonderful lounge chair out by the pool, sketchbook in one hand, cookie in another, baby sleeping in his grandma's arms, kids happily swimming. It was a good week.

On the outside...

There's just nothing quite like being outside, sitting in the cool, green grass, hearing the creak of the swing as it sways back and forth, rediscovering the world through the eyes of my baby, and remembering what it's like to be a child on the brink of summer. It's good medicine for the soul.

 I hope you're anticipating the joy in the simplicity of summer days as much as I am.

Latest works...

I've been madly working on some paintings lately, including these three...

It's all in preparation for something exciting!
I can't wait to share the big news with you, but you'll have to be patient for now [as will I]

On the inside

On the inside, looking out, longing to join the elder beyond the glass...

this is why my window is so dirty.
