Week 6......The Great Outdoors!

Just Finished this 4' x 5' painting for a client. Looks like a place I would enjoy kayaking. 

Went to Argo Park in Ann Arbor to kayak the beautiful Huron river on Sunday. I'm so excited and looking forward to our big trip to Pictured Rocks in August to kayak Lake Superior, we might hit the Porcupine Mountains also on that same trip for some great Michigan waterfalls.

My Newest Favorite Wine
I've been trying to drink more red wine lately and found this one at Meijer on sale for $6.99, you can't beat it. Mellow, slightly sweet and very easy to drink.

Happy Journey,
