Summer has begun= more ME time!

So, Ive been following blogs and reading blogs and have neglected to update mine since my first post in, oh, January. My last day of school was June 19th but I feel like I have been a whirlwind since then!
In a week and a half I have been up to Vermont for a wedding in a Cruise America RV with my BF, sisters and brothers-in-laws. Then to a cabin in PA with family and cousins for hiking, canoeing, and campfire sing-a-longs. Top that week off with a night out in Pittsburgh with my cousin, and end in Annapolis to relax with my handsome BF. These last few days in Alexandria have been welcome rest and relaxation. Time to go to the library, grill out on the deck, lounge at the pool, and even finish and ship this painting.

This painting features a Ducati bike "posed" in front of McKenzie Pass in Oregon. What a beautiful place it seems! I will have to go there some day. The fort-looking structure in the background is supposedly built entirely of lava rocks--wow!! It was an alchemy request on Etsy, an anniversary present for a husband who apparently wanted more "manly" decoration in the house! This is actually the second motorcycle painting I've done and I must say the balance between nature and machine makes for a great painting. Here's the other motorcycle painting--done for my sister and brother-in-law! (Prints are available on my Etsy shop.)

Well, I do beleive it is time to paint, or go to the pool, or read a good book--the possibilities are endless! Oh the perks of being a professional educator. Check out my Etsy shop to see more of my work. Updates coming soon!
