Best Birthday Ever!


My birthday was last week and we took a trip to Lake Lure, NC to celebrate on Friday. It was so beautiful and only 45 minutes from where we live. We swam in the lake surrounded by mountains and then we rented a canoe and ate lunch on the water. It was so peaceful and beautiful and I felt so grateful to have the life that I have. I've been a bit introspective since then. I'm trying to come up with some new paintings for a Seattle show in August but I'm having a hard time. I've just been enjoying the lazy summer and my birthday week.

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.
