For the next few weeks my family and I will be vacationing. It may not be as exotic or international as some vacations can be, but it's a place I love...filled with lots of good memories, and tons of inspiration with nature. I've never considered myself much of a nature girl, but being outdoors, with the mountains, water and sunshine sure feels good! In case you wanted to know...I did pack some of my pastels, sketchbook, and tools...I'm sure I'll find some quiet time on a picnic bench under a big pine tree! There are lots of those in the mountains! Happy Summer!
