Flowers and summer
On a personal note I am off to our family cabin in Bass Lake tomorrow for a blissfilled week of R&R. A typical Bass day is waking up whenever and either going for a run or swimming across followed by sunning and reading, eating sunflower seeds and drinking Diet Pepsi with my sister and her family and my husband and kids. The cabin is right on the water, with the best view of the lake, the only thing we don't have is a boat. But the neighbors do and they were so friendly and took us out for some boat rides, bless their hearts, and they will be there again so it's likely we'll get a spin about....I am excited to go on a road trip. You know this hip chick needs her road trips for inspiration and rejuvenation. Even though it's slow and therefore I am not exhausted I am mentally in need of a change of pace and scene. I am always re inspired when I go on any road trip and I'm very excited to go to Sun Valley at the end of the month as I've never been there. My fellow artist friend Sharon lives there part-time and Ben and I are going to road trip while our kids are busy doing their various summer activities. Alex is a camp counselor and Abby gets to go to London for 2 weeks and stay with her cousins....sweet hook-up! So I won't be posting til I return from Bass on the 10th and I wish all of you wonderful fans of hip chick a happy fourth of July and a happy week. Thank you for your continued support!
This blue poppy is teeny tiny and I painted it when Abby came to the shop with me on Wednesday....
