water time on Tuesday

I am participating in an art tag swap and the theme is "under the sea".  For inspiration I went to the shores of Lake Michigan yesterday and floated about.  I had a bag of random art stuff along with a journal.  Packed a sandwich and my floaty.    Plopped my butt in the sand, took out my journal, dug through my bag to find out my tools were really random!  oh well, it is an adventure day anyway!  Just did a little sketch - then went out and bobbed around in the water for quite awhile - just soaking up the day!  Came back to my journal - added some colored pencil then some watercolor - using lake water, of course.

I am going to keep going with this - too much fun to just leave as is...then onto my tag project.

So as I was leaving town to head home...I had to get a photo of this incredible house...it is THE perfect Practical Magic house!  Don't you agree???




Once at home the sun was shining through the most beautiful spider web.  A day filled with beauty and inspiration!

that is the perfect practical magic house!!!!
beautiful photo of the spider web. they are awesome..no 2 alike and built very strategically ..saw a show where it was eplained just how they were made,the webbing in what order and why..and the diameter of the "web string" in what place and why. it was fascinating! i do not like spiders,but i know they are important!..ecept for black widows and such!..the nasty,poisonous ones can just drop off the face of the earth!!!

Love it - and love the plopping in lake Michigan part too.

Love your underwater artwork, and I hope you post it when it's finished. I don't know why but I nevervthought of people swimming in the great lakes. Somehow they seemed unapproachable, which is a daft idea. Now I can imagine Michigan with you bobbing around. That house is wonderful. I want the room at the very top! Sorry I've been away so long, I know you understand.
