It’s a rare event when I get to take a trip, so I feel lucky to have traveled to the Sunshine State for Spring Break again this year.
Mornings and evenings at the pool are a wonderful way to start and end the day.
Afternoons and sunsets at the beach are the best! Wish I could do that everyday.
The lush, tropical vegetation is always a treat to see in March when everything in my neighborhood is just waking up from being dormant all winter.
I spent a beautiful day at the Naples Botanical Gardens.
Now I’m brainstorming ways I can arrange to visit the beach more often. Vacations are great, aren’t they?!
Spring break was the theme for my art cards this past week! I had more fun practicing my illustrating skills and watercolor painting techniques, so I think this is becoming my new favorite style.
I enjoyed a quiet week at home, getting caught up on sewing projects, working on some homework, and spending time working in the yard. The grass is greening, more bulbs are peaking up, and the wildlife has returned to play. Things are definitely looking up in our yard, so I used that inspiration to illustrate my first card.
I was also dreaming of spring break trips from years past, so I illustrated a beach scene. How fun it would be to escape to that beach!
My favorite cards are the extra set I made for Michelle, since we agreed to swap cards on the first day of each new season. But I can’t show you those until she receives them. I love how they turned out, so I hope she likes them too! In fact, I duplicated them to have a matching set in my journal.
Be sure to stop by our Flickr group to see what Michelle and Sandra have been doing on their fun art cards.
