End of August

Oh my, where has this summer gone! Tomorrow is the last day of August. I'm off to the ocean tomorrow and plan to do some painting while I'm at the beach. We'll see how that turns out, LOL. I've been very busy the past few weeks but getting some artwork in here and there.  I painted a few things while on my vacation this week.

this is an abstract that I am still working on , putting the finishing touches.
I got this great insect book out of the library and having some fun making up my
 own journal pages based on the information and the illustrations.

Random nonsense in blue
I have been procrastinating on posting...its been about 3 weeks :(. The last few times I've posted it's taken me a long time to upload my photos etc. I guess I need to post more often so that there are less images to post, huh? I'll get back on track soon, I promise and there be alot less time between posts.

We celebrated an anniversary and my husband sent me an amazing and gorgeous bouquet. One of the best ever! Two days after I got it I had left for a few days to my parents and I was afraid the bouquet would completely wilt while I was away but its still going strong!

 I painted this one today, a week later:
OK I was going to post more but this blogger is really annoying me now!
I hope to catch up on everyone's blogs this weekend and looking forward to browsing and catching up on everyone's posts.
Take care and happy end-of- summer!
Have a safe holiday weekend,

Summer Sunday

Oh jeesh its been hot here! What a weekend. Lots of indoor activities to get out of this heat!
testing out a new water brush
 Working on watercolors.
Watercolor journaling with some ink writing. Its a bit messy. That pen is tricky...
 I made some more stamps as well.
carving more erasers!
I am missing the index card challenge and routine of doing that. Lots of fun, that was!
Here are some of my last ones I made up the last days of July.

Have a great week!
