the summer sun is setting

Lake Michigan • summer 2009

I think I might be in denial that summer is over. I mean, officially, fall doesn't start 'til September 21, right? *Sigh* See? Denial! It's always hard spending time in the studio in the spring and summer, but this summer was particularly hard...partly because my hubby and I were too busy having fun! It was a great summer filled with cave exploring with friends, an extended weekend getaway on Table Rock Lake with family, and a relaxing week-long trip to Lake Michigan with my good friend Julie and her family.

That's not to say that I'm not excited for fall - it's probably my favorite season! I love the cooler temps, the changing leaves ( especially the orange ones!), a warm cup of coffee or tea to keep my hands warm, and the thought of upcoming snow. There's something about the crispness in the air that gets me excited to hunker down in the warmth of my studio and spend hours drawing and painting. I have several projects set up for this fall that I'm excited to start. More on that later!
