New art in my travel journal

A lot of my art has been centering around water themes lately. I guess you can see why. I have been enjoying this wonderful mild summer in Seattle. I want to get out on the water more this summer. It's already August, I can't believe it! I hope you are enjoying your summer too.

Kayaking the Puget Sound

Last night was a lovely night on the sound. The weather was perfect, near 80's at sunset, and the water conditions were calm. It was great. My friend Jim and I kayaked from the Ballard Locks to Golden Gardens in Seattle. When the weather is nice in Seattle, we have to get outdoors and do as much as we can.
I found out I get a little seasick on these trips, so I am going to be looking into motion sickness remedies!

Floating over Coffee Pot Drive

I have fond memories of Coffee Pot Drive. It is in Florida, in St. Petersburg. I wish I could go back someday, but for now,,,, I will just float over "Coffee Pot Drive".


I am at a great time in my life.  I feel like I am diving in and going for it!  It is a great time to experience everything you can, and be fearless!

Botany shoot

These were taken at my photography meetup group at the University of Washington last week. It was really wonderful to see a wide variety of tropical plants. I am still learning how to take good photographs, I may need help from a better camera. These photos were some of my favorites.

My kayaking class

My kayak

I took my first kayaking class on Wednesday. It was an amazing day on the water. It was about 80 degrees, (nice for Seattle). I had so much fun!  I can't wait to go back again!

New post cards

I just received my post cards back from the printer and couldn't be happier about the quality of them. I have just listed them in my shop!

A perfect Seattle day, July 2nd!

It was a fantastic day in SUNNY Seattle! Everyone was out enjoying the beautiful weather, at thriving Pikes Place Market, and I was out with my camera! It couldn't have been a more magical day!
