Take a Hike – Poetry in the Woods

There’s a hiking trail not far from my house that I love to go to, especially in Fall.

The longest trail is about 3.1 miles and goes through a prairie, along a small lake where motor boats aren’t allowed (which keeps it clean and quiet), and through the woods. It’s actually one of my favorite local hikes!

Along the trail there are these wonderful signs with beautiful poetry printed on them.

I find them so intriguing and comforting while exploring these trails. It would be so fun to set up something like this in my own backyard!

New Pages in My Sketchbook

In order to draw daily and fill up more sketchbooks, which is on my bucket list again for 2016, I always have fun coming up with new drawing prompts. My goal is to draw as much as possible, to draw something every day, and to eventually draw everything. Yes, everything! 😉

I had so much fun illustrating this new series of wildlife and nature-inspired scenes in my Moleskin sketchbook!

The next step is to get these on the computer and draw them in Illustrator for some digital art.

Happy drawing!
