Fast forward to 2017, I have finally created my blog. Though I still plan to write about books and hiking, I will also be sharing:
- my art
- art & craft show adventures
- and inspiration.
To start with inspiration...
Since I was a toddler, my parents have immersed me in nature; camping trips, day hikes, learning about trees, and planting flowers. They even allowed me to plant an acorn in the back yard when I was 5.
"The mighty oak was once a nut like you"
Nature continues to inspire me. While I enjoy painting acorns, flowers and butterflies grace much of my art. My hand-made bags are primarily earth tones and include painted daisies. Pieces of nature form the backdrop for my product photos. I am looking forward to summer when I can paint outside on my back porch.
I will end my first blog post with some of my favorite places I've hiked:
- Yosemite National Park, CA
- Minnewaska State Park, NY
- C & O Canal Towpath, MD
- Camp Echo Trail, PA
- Anything overlooking or along the Susquehanna River
Gertrude's Nose, Minnewaska, NY
Thank you for joining me on this new journey!
