We just got back home from a trip to Eleuthera, a gorgeous island in the Bahamas surrounded by some of the clearest water I have ever seen.

The photos seen here are of Gaulding Cay, Twin Sisters, Surfer’s Beach, and the incredibly stunning Queen’s Bath; a place where when the tide is low little pools form and warm in the sun, full of sea life trapped for the day until the tide comes back again.

My days were filled with snorkeling and at night I did a lot of sketching by way of flashlight. I have a few new paintings in the works inspired by the colors and flora found on the island.


Late Spring is in full force at the farm with blooming lilacs, peonies, lupine and iris.

We went up for the weekend to set up a little display of my prints, cards and pillows at the very lovely My Secret Stash in downtown Traverse City and then spent the rest of our time eating blueberry pie, exploring with the dogs and helping my parents garden (although I was probably more helpful with the pie eating than gardening).
