Pages from my Art Journal

 This is my version of some scenery I saw in photographs from Jane LaFazio's recent posting from Montecito Family Summer Camp ...

 One of my favorite people in the world is my friend, of my favorite places in the world is Saugatuck, along Michigan's gorgeous west coast right on Lake Michigan and the Kalamzoo River.

The ink and watercolor above represent a recent visit to a great coffee shop in Saugatuck with Debra!

 ...more art journal...greens not seeming "true" to me...really...gotta get a new camera!!
Daylillies have always been a favorite of mine. I've had clumps of them from my mother AND mother-in-law's yard in every home I've ever lived in since 1979 when I first got married...
 (...see that window up there? I'm sitting at a desk on the other side, typing away...)

...long since divorced and sadly, both women are no longer with us...but their Daylillies are...
...and ferns...and Hostas...and iris...oh, and 3 gorgeous teal colored and very weathered carp made from a super light wood--
I LOVE them!!

Happy Birthday, Mom...I miss you...
