Every summer my friend Kate and I head to the lake with a car packed full of supplies. (To be honest, my mixed media crap takes up a LOT more room than her paints, light table and papers!) We started off our visit with a stop at Cops and Doughnuts, a bakery half-way to the lake, to stock up on provisions.
We spend several days working on various projects. In Kate's case, it was painting birds for her 2015 calendar.
For me, more mini-canvases, journals and working on a swap.
There were plenty of bins of washi tape, ribbons, paint palettes and paint to go around!
We also managed a day of gelli-printing! The kitchen counter has never seen such color!
Of course, all work and no play makes Kate and Jeanie dull girls so we headed off to the farmer's market. Remember this little girl from the last post? She was full of it! I hope her mom has the Magic Eraser because of all those little fingers get cherry juice all over her house, it could be trouble!
This corn guy was the best salesman at the market (and the corn was good too!). The tomatoes were fabulous.
Evenings were mellow. Easy dinners (gazpacho, corn, cheese, salads) and when we saw the heron, it was bonus points!
I couldn't stop taking photos. This one is manipulated with color, but I couldn't resist!
All good things come to an end. On a lovely final evening, we watched the sunset and enjoyed the passing boats.
Meanwhile, it's time to finish what I started... but more on that later!
