Day 125 and Summer Break

Hello readers! You have probably noticed my decrease in posting since summer started. When summer rolls around the sunshine and warm weather activities lure me away from my computer. I'd rather spend my time swimming at the pool or splashing in a creek, riding bikes or walking on the beach, eating ice cream or watching fireworks. And while I am kicking up my heels, my poor computer is languishing alone.

I tried to tell myself that I would put an end to my summer break this month and return to a regular posting schedule, but I realize now that was just a lie. So I will be taking 3 or 4 more weeks away from the virtual world. Once September rolls around and the kids are back in school, I will offer my apologies to my computer for ditching her and, assuming she forgives me, I will return to my blog with more regularity.

So go out and drink some cold lemonade, read a good summer book and chase lightening bugs in the yard after the sun goes down. Once we've had our fill of summer, let's meet back here and I'll share the rest of my 6-months of daily sketches as well as some new tap pieces and a new floral.

In the meantime, here is my Day 125 sketch to tide you over. It is a sketch of one of my lovely irises that bloomed this spring.

Summer DOES indeed lure us away from the studio...but that is OK. I'll take off now for a cold glass of rose and meet you back here in a week or two...have fun!
