Fish Creek, Wisconsin Vacation

If you want some toys for your garden, you could find all kinds of things here. It's so colorful! And half of the things are whirling or twirling in some way! Anyway, it's fun to visit.

The Rusty Rabbit in Ephraim, Door County, Wisconsin

We were vacationing in Door County, Wisconsin this summer and I found a nice shop in Ephraim called The Rusty Rabbit. I seem to be seeing rabbits everywhere! I wonder if it would fit in my garden. It's a very arty community with lots of galleries and art studios. The weather is usually cooler there so it's a great break from the hot and humid weather of the coast of Viriginia!

Another Day at the Beach - etching

When I was at the beach recently, I saw these seagulls and thought that it would be a good time to do something local so I made this etching. I worked hard trying to wipe the ink on the plate just right before I printed it. Printing an etching can be very challenging! Anyway, it was good practice for a bigger one that I want to do. It gives me a good excuse to go back to the beach to search for my next models!
