If you think for a second that the art stopped becuase I took a little Staycation, quite the contrary.  I am taking in as much as I can and that included my little trip to Coronado……how on earth could you not jus want to paint in the most beatuiful view was staring back at me?  I took my travel art supplies along with my watercolor art journal.  Love to just doodle away!

I think you can tell by how happy I look that this place becomes me….



this was my own backdrop as I painted…how could you not feel inspired?



This was the second piece I painted.  



So Staycations or just taking a break is for rejuninating, refreshing and finding my creative inspiration that is all around me.  I needed this time more then I even thought.  I love having that time to embrace the artist in me and not hide it.  Sometimes it means taking out my water color journal and just carving some time for me.  So great when you can share it too.
