Strolling by the water at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore in Indiana is a serene experience. The sun sparkles on the water and the breeze blows your troubles off your shoulders. Whether you enjoy scouting for rare species of birds or flying kites on the sandy beach, the national lakeshore’s 15,000 acres will continually enchant you. Even seeing the Chicago skyline 35 miles away across Lake Michigan makes it seem like the rest of the world is far away. Photo by National Park Service.

Some tourists in the Chicago Museum of Natural History are marveling at the dinosaur bones. One of them asks the guard, “Can you tell me how old the dinosaur bones are?”
     
     The guard replies, “They are 3 million, four years, and six months old.”
     
     "That’s an awfully exact number,“ says the tourist. "How do you know their age so precisely?”
     
     The guard answers, “Well, the dinosaur bones were three million years old when I started working here, and that was four and a half years ago.”

I had to take a minute after my twitch stream to say Happy Earth Day! 🌏💚✨ I wanted to share my painting “Butterfall” because to me this image represents a fountain of possibilities! ⛲✨✨ I am optimistic that we can start changing how we negatively impact the environment and do better. 😊❤ We all share the same planet so let’s do our best to make it a happy healthy place for all it’s fauna and flora! 👧🐶🌱💙 We can all do it together! 🤗💞 “Butterfall” is such a positive painting I had to bring her with to C2E2 this weekend as a print! 😀💕 If you’re at the show, you can find me at table T1 in Artist Alley with her and other prints too! 😉👍I’m here all weekend! 😁💖
