First I want to show you the little painting I did this week. She is certainly a Diva Cat. Perhaps you have a similar Diva in your life! I will post this on eBay tonight, starting at just $9.99!
On Friday our family made a trip to Elephant Rocks State Park. It is about an hour and a half from our home and we usually go once each summer for a picnic and hike. Let me tell you it is very unique and beautiful, but a "mom's nightmare" if potential fatal injuries make you nervous!
The park consists of a huge natural outcropping of giant pink granite boulders, it is really something to see! But if you have dare devils in your family like my son, Jordan, it can be quite nerve-wracking. (Sorry Mom, you may need a glass of wine now!) The bad part was that he jumped back and forth about 20 times so that his sister could get the perfect action shot.
Every year I swear that I am going to wait in the picnic area while my husband and kids hike up all the boulders so that I don't have to yell "be careful!" so many times. Somehow, I always manage to hike up there with them and subject myself to the torture of seeing them jump over deep crevasses and sit on ledges overlooking lagoons many feet below. But, it was a beautiful day, and rare that we could all plan something together between busy schedules. We stopped in a couple of historic towns along the way with fun little shops and antiques (my favorite part). Now that that's over, I can relax and sketch some more ideas for paintings~Have a nice evening!
