    I’ve been away for a few days, we had a nice relaxing trip to a waterpark resort and did some hiking at Starved Rock State Park. This little Chipmunk didn’t mind us being nearby, in fact I was surprised to see so many critters pay no mind at all to passing hikers.

    Still busy over here with projects and deadlines and children and, of course, the puppy. I’ll update later today with a progress shot of The Pig. Just had to share this photo – while I was waiting for my non-rubbery (yay me!) Salmon to cook, I spotted this butterfly on my tiger lilies. I don’t know what kind it is, there’s a lovely shade of pale blue on the lower half of the wings when they’re spread. If you know, please share! Update: She’s a female black swallowtail. There. Don’t you feel better now that you know, too?

    Feeling better over here, thank you for being so kind to check in on me! It was one helluva virus, I hope none of you get it.

    Just wanted to share this shot from my wildflower garden, and now I’ll go get ready to dive into my studio for the day. I hope you’re all having a relaxing extended holiday weekend!

    The last several days in the Hudson/Putnam Valley area were really beautiful. I ended up being busier than I thought I would be, so scenic imagry is limited.

    I’ve returned to a ton of blank canvas patiently waiting in the studio, and will start sketching new pieces today and get ready to throw some paint this week!

    I’m not sure why, but Poppies seem to grow on me more and more every year.
