I've had quite a bit of teaching work the past couple of weeks and haven't had much time to blog or paint, but now that my working days are over for this school year it is time to focus on getting through the last two weeks. As the school year comes to an end I have noticed the calendar filling up with year end activities for the girls. Then summer truly begins.
We are trying to plan the summer with little family get aways and hopefully a long overdue anniversary trip for Sean and I. We were going to go away for our 5th wedding anniversary, then our 6th, then our 7th, and it just never happened. This year is our 8th. So it is time. We are thinking Maui. Any suggestions about must do's when we are there?
This weekend looks like it is going to be a good one. I am having a canvas custom made to fit over our mantle. I will begin painting it tomorrow. I can't wait. And to get me inspired, I think I might head out to this weekend's Saanich Peninsula Artists' Studio Tour. I've never been to this one before. I want to go to the Muse Winery, not only to see the artists, but maybe I'll also get to try some more wine [had some at the ICC Food Fest couple of weeks back and it was pretty good stuff].
Then on Sunday we may head to the Sea Cider Ciderhouse for their 3rd Birthday party to raise money for Lifecycles, promoting island food security. I also want to check out their mezzanine where they often host art shows.
Well, busy days ahead. Lots of painting and planning to do. Thanks for stopping by.
