Showing a Bit of Love

Yes… I know this blog could use some love. But that just means life is happening.

The kids are being home schooled. Lessons have to be planned, field trips, the park, hour long bike rides, and of course art projects (which can often be a massive undertaking). I can find sparkles and paper scraps in the carpet, the kitchen, my hair, sometimes even the bed. But the mess, its worth it!

Its mushroom season, so for us this means hours of road trips and hiking. Some weekends we find our selves chasing rain, reports of mushrooms, and the ever elusive golden chanterelles, and our favorites… the black trumpet!

Does this mean I quit working? Heck no! In fact this has all served to inspire, so much so that I’ve ran out of canvas! 5 more paintings finished, 5 more on the way. But you will just have to wait until next week…

Until then… my elusive mushrooms….


always our favorite find.. the black trumpet…
