Ocean Fun

For Baby Keegan.  Shhhhhhh!!! Don't tell.
My Niece Tracy doesn't have facebook or read my blog.
So I believe I am safe posting this.
She loves green and orange.
Not sure about the eyes. I may change them to blue. And add a little blue in the mix..
Could be some changes....
Steve is busy working on the frame. 
Shower is this weekend so I hope she likes it.

Well I just got back from the beach for a mini vacation.
First couple days with Heidi, Jamie, Hilary and Jen. 
  And then a couple of days with my Sister Heidi.
And then the rest of the time with Steve and our Daughter's Family.
It was really nice.
I didn't bring my paints and I will tell you I really missed them.
I brought some markers and watercolors for doodling but that was it.
So the following is a mish mash of the week and a half of the beach.

 On the boat in the bay
 I am at my happy place.... Watching the sailboats go by....

Sprinkles on my Ice Cream from Dumsers
So glad to be there again with the full moon.

 More Doodling
Oh how I missed my paints.

My Sister Heidi picking up Seashells.
This is Heidi's Birthday Week!!!!
Happy Birthday Heidi!!!!!
I Love You!!
Kooky Girl Doodling
Steve and his first mate Jake

Nelly and her Boys at Harpoon Hanna's watching Lacrosse.

And when I got home my New Somerset Studio Gallery was there.
My Ballerina is in it!!
Can't get better then that!!
Life is Good.
3 times in 1 year!!!
I am so Grateful!!!

I will leave you with my new Band Crush.
Lovin this Music!!
Playing it over and over.

You are the sum total of everything you've ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot - it's all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.

Heather I am sorry you didn't have paints but I sure do like your doodle art. Looks like a great time. Congrats on the publication. Nothing quite like seeing your art in print.

I love the shower gift! There is no doubt she will love it. I have a baby shower this weekend and did a painting for them as well. Its a nice gift to give - makes the giving so much more special.

Loving your great owl and fab doodles. Looks like a great few days with the family. Congratulations on being published again Heather. Happy PPF, Annette x

Mari Huertas said...

Thanks for sharing with us your time of intimacy and peace with family, loved that owl, I think it would be ideal as a design for a pendant or ring. Saludos.

OMG! That owl! Baby Keegan is going to spend so much time staring at that as she grows. What a wonderful thing to give her!

Abigail Davidson said...
