Anyway, this week was busy and a little odd, but mostly because I had no time in the studio. This was through no fault of my own, but due to leaking pipes in the ceiling above the studio - boo!! They're fixed now, the wall is repainted, and I can move back in on Monday, and hopefully not faint from paint fumes (that place has really bad air circulation...!).
Here's some of what I did this week:
My week started out in the most GLORIOUS place on the planet (IMHO): Ludington, Michigan. My family's been vacationing there since I was a kid, and I love it there more than I can say. (Seriously, I could go on about it for hours!) I was able to start of the holiday weekend at a Scottish festival in Alma, Michigan, then headed northwest and spent the rest of the weekend reading in a hammock, hiking, eating, hiking, sleeping, hiking, kayaking, and playing games. It was exhausting, relaxing, and wonderful!!

|Skyline Trail at the State Park|
|Burger, fries, and lemonade at|

|Eskimo Kisses ice cream at House of Flavors!|
And I couldn't let a perfectly good fire go to waste without making any s'mores, of course!!
Aside from sketching animals for the book, I painted this thumbprint tree for my nephew's Baptism. It will be full of thumbprint leaves from family and friends!
Next week I'm excited to be back in the studio and back on track!!
