The girls and I had fun blowing ink around on the paper with straws and then coloring in the different areas and then applying another layer of ink.   Of all the art projects that we have done together this summer the girls said that this was their favorite.

The first good downpour since April. The girls had to celebrate by dancing in the rain…….

I ran off to the mountains for four days and visited a friend who is lucky enough to live with these views!!!  My girls explored the hills and swam in the creek, while I painted with my friend.  I just love summer!

I just took some new photos of some of my art and thought I’d share this.

Summers are full of adventureful hikes, songs around the camp fire,  swimming in cool lakes and all the wonderful cousins!!!!

I love to paint outside! I’ve been doing lots of watercolors outside in the last month, and now that the girls are on summer vacation they are joining me. At first I thought they might not stay focused very long, or that they would get done too quickly, but they are really into it, and they are seriously studying the trees, plants, water, fish, and bugs that we encounter on our hikes, and bike rides. I thought I would share some of our work with you.
