I just came across a blog where the author mentioned her favorite summer songs. This is mine and yes, it is called "Summer Song". It's quite a few years old now, but I still love it. I remember listening to it when my husband, then boyfriend, took me to the train in Chicago (December, 1992) and then again at our wedding reception (June, 1994). I still like Joe Satriani, but I must've really been going through a faze those two years. Enjoy it.

I bought this wood bracelet at Michael's the other day. They had them in their ad. I wood burned the design on it and filled it in with watercolor then coated it with some kind of triple thick, clear coating. I thought it turned out pretty well.

Here are my drawings from Drawing Day. I got off to a good start; but didn't do as many later on in the day as I would've liked to. Oh well. This was a great exercise and I did draw more than I have in a long time. I also DID use the Moleskine book and it was wonderful. My son actually did a little drawing in it that day too.

I haven't posted anything is quite awhile, so instead of spreading all these posts out over several days, I decided to share everything at once.
Please check out my "other" blog for a couple of new paintings too. There is an ATC sized one from a beach on PEI and one of "Lulu" that was done for a gift. I've started painting again since I've got a lot of photo reference material from our trip last summer to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. I have a piece of 300# watercolor paper stretched on a board and will start the preliminary drawing soon. The photo I'm working from is the one from an earlier post of these lobster shacks on PEI (Prince Edward Island).And...This Saturday, June 7 is DRAWING DAY! See the link to the right for more details. I'll be drawing in a Moleskine that I bought months ago and haven't touched because it's all nice and new and clean. But now I have this new idea (new to me at least) that I'm not going to save my sketchbooks, I'm going to USE them! What good are they if they are kept on the shelf?
We think we are going to get a video camera soon because we gave Bob a glider ride for his 45th birthday and he would love to take video to document this flight. So, if we do, I may be able to post my own hooping video or at least my progress. We'll see.
I still want to make a slightly heavier hoop when I can find the right tubing sold by the foot. I just don't want to buy a whole roll.
