"Oh the places you will go!" A peek inside my Watercolor Journal

That is me in that party dress.  Actually it was an Easter dress.  Notice how the Dr. Seuss poem is all blurred because I took my journal on a little boating trip the other day.  The kids were boarding and when my husband did a sharp turn in the boat, a huge wave of many gallons of water came over the bow and landed on my head and in my lap, much to his delight!  Of course, he did not get wet - just me and my journal.

Oh the Places you will go!
******Note to myself and others*******  Protect your journal in a zip-locked baggie when involved with water sports and you feel compelled to take your journal along, even though you know you won't really have time to work in it.

"Jordan Pond" - a peek inside my Watercolor Journal

Here is another page from my Maine watercolor journal.   I painted this while waiting for steaming hot pop overs sitting outside at Mt. Desert's Jordan Pond.  The chairs facing out to the pond seemed so inviting.

Painting in the Lavender Fields

I am in Hood River, Oregon with nine fabulous women.  We are having fun painting all day, laughing all night and sharing the stories of our lives.  Here is a photo of the lavender field where we painted.  The sight, smells and harmonious buzzing of the bees was heavenly!
