Huron-Manistee River Trail
hiked 11 miles with my husband and 3 kids, met some wonderful people and painted this from our campsite.

*also added a pic of me and my son painting together (:
First attempt at outside art (or inside, too) with a distinct sunset. Will try again with my small card, watercolor sticks, and black pen. Thanks for encouraging a new activity. I can only get better!!!
I've been experimenting with a looser approach to my drawings, but my Type-A perfectionist leanings fight it. Practice makes progress!
