Hey there. Summer is upon us! School’s out! For me, this means late night coffee, the occasional way-before-five cocktail, walking my errands instead of driving them, forgetting what day of the week it is, the discovery of True Blood, tiny adventures and lots of time for painting. Highlighting the last two here: Tiny adventures. This morning I was fortunate enough to take a skiff from Guemes Island to Jack Island (click on the link for more info). Just a quick trip, coffee in hand, wearing a super-cool PFD and a borrowed down jacket. Placid water, salty air, quiet. Heaven times. I’ve spent this day dreaming and scheming ways to get myself a little boat. Just a skiff, nothing fancy. I am way too damn happy floating on calm water, dipping into little places that your feet and your car can’t get you to alone, to not be in charge of my own small vessel. Here are a few shots from my morn:
I’ve been painting lots. Here are a few pictures of the pieces that are ready to go, but I’ve got several more in the works. Detailed photos (of the pieces below) can be found on my Etsy site – click the link below each picture if you’re interested in seeing more.
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at this blog. Here’s to a playful summer, from me and Jack the Dog.
