Still Finding Balance


This past weekend I was at the Sturgeon Bay Fine Art Fair.  It took me by surprise when I was presented with a first place award in the 2-dimensional  category!  I think the best part of winning this blue ribbon was the excitement from my children when I showed it to them Sunday evening.  My five year old son quickly found the perfect place to display it, and I think he may have been inspired a little.  One of the biggest reasons I chose to home school my children is so they have the freedom to explore the things they are most passionate about.

At the moment the gardens are still keeping me busy.  I am still finding time for my art, but I am also looking forward to another year of homesteading.  We expanded our large vegetable garden, and after my next event at Monument Square Art Festival, I have scheduled fewer shows so I can spend time on the gardens and enjoy the summer with my family.  I hope to have updates on my new work and I am excited about a new series in the making.  Details will be posted soon!
