Earth Day Hike

These colors and shots are just dreamy... I had to share. Simply perfect mother nature is I tell you! These were a few from the hike I took on Sunday - I was in northern Minnesota and it was actually snowing... enjoy!

Oh, how I love green! Seriously...

Oh ya and I hugs rocks...esoecially on earth day!

Sunday Sketches: Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day Friends!
Did you get out and celebrate? Did you get out and enjoy? Here's a page I worked on last night in my sketch book...

Happy Sunday Sketches!

My intention was to get this over on Sunday Sketches... but I finally just finished it tonight!
My best friend has a husky... and I have a golden...
and my best friend and I love to have coffee - or as we like to call it our house JAVA!
Nothing like a little jolt to inspire you!

I've abandoned my sketchbooks and paintbrushes and camera for the gym and walking the dog. Sad. Is that really an excuse? I miss my art so much. It hurts. I took my camera just around the neighborhood today to try to incorporate art and inspiration again in my life. I miss it. I have to make time for it... just like I have to make time for working out.

Ahhhh, that whole juggling life thing....

 Art is such a part of me. I've been dreaming about living closer to wilderness, closer to water, closer to peace. Nature is my peace, and I just want to be around it more. It feels good to dream super big. I haven't really shared it with anyone except a close friend tonight. What are you dreaming about? I'd love to know! Tell someone. I think it's important to dream big. I don't think I did enough of it as a kid, and so I almost find it hard to dream big. You can do anything if you put your passion into it.

Here's some of the pics I took today! Hope you are all enjoying spring! Can't wait to dive back in to it all. Like all the pics of the flowers I took... I feel it's time to bloom again.
