I'm back from my short trip to New York state. The Hudson River Valley is an interesting place, and even though this is my second trip to the area, I wish I had more time to do a few other things. Art gardens were on our agenda however. We saw some huge modern art pieces, statues really, as well as lots of other interesting art, along with fields of wild flowers and butterflies. We walked a lot. It was a fun trip, and nice to get away for a couple of days. I took lots of photos that I will share share once I get them squared away.
I can't believe July has just about wrapped up. Back in my teaching days when I had to return to school in late August, the joke in my house was how the only month faster than July is August. Smile. I will say summer mode has hit me. I'm having a hard time getting to a few "projects" around the house that I've wanted to do, like finish cleaning up my sewing area and also picking up my "studio" happy space. Instead I spend a lot of time outside either in the garden or screen porch.
I tell myself that it is better to enjoy the nice summer days (especially when it isn't raining) since the mess isn't going any place. Smile. Hopefully when the weather cools off I'll get some motivation back.
Today I want to share my last journal page for Alison's summer countryside challenge at Art Journal Journey.
