This weekend, my husband and I will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary. Time sure does fly when you are having fun. I am so blessed to have a partner who supports my art. He’s simply the best.
It’s funny how life can put two people together. He’s Dominican, I’m a Maryland girl. We had very little of the same interests when we first met, but we both just knew.
I would’ve traveled the world to find a man like him, but I sure am glad that he was in Florida when I was.
What’s your love story?
This past month has been so fun in my little world of watercolor.
I am now 80% done with a project that I have faithfully worked on, daily, for the past 4 months. Over 150 hours of painting and endless hours of sketching, planning, scanning, editing- repeating.
I still have a ways to go but, in the process, I have visited some of the most amazing places in my wanderlust imagination:
Kentucky -coming soon
New Hampshire-coming soon
This project has afforded me the opportunity to be increasingly astonished with the amount of natural beauty that I have within road-trip-travel-time of my home. My mind is swirling with daydreams of a summer cross country trips to all of these amazing places. I’m using this project as a virtual bucket list for my vacation plans. So, in reality, I am not painting- I am handwriting a HUGE map of places I’ll go – but with a paintbrush instead of a pen.
Someday world, someday.

…not the way I do love you.
Those are the song lyrics that played as I was almost ready to walk down the aisle to be married to my sweetheart.
It was a VERY windy day:
There had been a tropical storm warning in effect. It’s ok, because we are the type of people that love a good adventure. In fact, that’s one of the things that hooked me about Frank. He was/is always willing to get in the car and just drive until we find something new.
My new series of paintings is a bit of an homage to that wanderlust lifestyle we love. We live in a beautiful world, and I want to celebrate that.
