Today is my birthday. We're celebrating at the Pinery in Ontario Canada--what a delightful place to celebrate. Our little friends cheer us up. Archive picture from last year. We're not online and hopefully will catch up when we return. (posting early)

We're camping at the Pinery in Ontario Canada and I posted this ahead. It's a view along the Pinery River. I'll try to catch up on commenting when I return. Click image to view larger. (We're not online up here).

We found this moth on the bathroom window at the Pinery in the morning (last year). I think it might be a cecropia--does anyone know? Ah, Rose, thank you, it is a Polyphemus Moth.
We are leaving shortly for our yearly memorial day trip. I will not be online while gone--but may post ahead if I have time and will try to catch up commenting when I return. No guarantees on either count.

We are going camping at the Pinery in Ontario, Canada, leaving tomorrow morning. I will not be online while I am gone, but if I have time, I will post a picture a day (ahead) and try to get back later to anyone who comments, no guarantees though, on either count.

I love the expressions on these two! There are two of these large bowls across from the art museum at Cranbrook, and if you bang one of them, the other picks up the resonance.

A lovely spot to sit and meditate. LOL!
I apologize for being so far behind. I will try to catch up. But we're having out of town company.
And here is my latest painting, "Down on her Luck." This is done in gouache on red paper.

The houses in Detroit vary enormously in size and structure. Many are made of brick, in part because of the fires associated with the riots. Currently, many boast flowering trees. (This is not our house, but a house nearby.)

Hiking around at Stoney Creek Metropark--which has a wide variety of habitats. Two of him by me and one of me by him. (I wasn't feeling well.) We were walking in the rain and I'd had bad insomnia the night before.

Pier Park is right on Lake St. Clair. You can see that most of the boatwells are still empty. And in the background, a freighter going by in the shipping channel--the rest of the lake is fairly shallow.

The old abandoned gardens at the abandoned house on Canyon are in their glory now--if you call a plethora of weeds glorious. The flowers are wonderful.
I've been terribly busy, I'm sorry. :-(
Here are two of my recent quick sketches. THe first, Medusa when the curse first hits her, is in watercolor, the second in pigment marker and gouache. They are smaller than they appear here.
