Greetings readers!

I almost totally forgot to post my journal entries today! Well, the day is not over and we have plenty of sunshine left to the evening. For this post, I have two journal entries to share that happened around this time last year in August. First up is my little drawing of our favorite vacation spot in Michigan.

ArtJournal 12My father-in-law has a lovely cottage nestled in the heart of Bass Lake near Greenville, Michigan that we loving call “The Coasts of Gowen”. I remember that while the day was warm you could sense the oncoming of the fall season. This particular scene was drawn after a late afternoon of relaxing by the beach near the brand new fire pit that my father-in-law just put in. My father-in-law is a DIY whiz in case you were wondering…

I love that I have a nice way to remember our time spent at the cottage in Michigan. Our memories of our vacations here are always wonderful because of the quality time spent with our family. I look forward to going back real soon.

On a completely different note, the next entry shows off the more humorous side of my art. This particular drawing was done to prove to my husband that we watched the movie ‘Twister” on August 17, 2014. You see, my husband didn’t believe me when I said that it has been a while that we watched the film. At the time, I really wanted to watch it again but he was on the fence because we watched it ‘recently’. While I admit that we have watched the movie together several times, it had been a couple of years since we watched it last, but I had no way to prove it. So this time I decided I would record the event for ‘posterity’ a.k.a. prove my husband wrong the next time I want to watch the film.

So here is my little humorous drawing that pays homage to on of my favorite films.
