Sorry to be absent for several days. I've just returned home from a trip to Rhode Island where I went to a family reunion and celebrated the 4th with my extended family. I brought drawing supplies with me, intending to finish up some projects and post them to you but, of course, that never happens on vacation.
went to the movies, picnicked with my family, and went on a wonderful sunset sail in Newport Harbor.
We wound our way along Ocean Drive to look at the dozens of mansions and imagine ourselves in the good life . . .
and watched Bristol make itself ready for the annual parade.
I swooned at all the blue hydrangeas in bloom for the holiday. (I grew up with blue hydrangea but, sadly, they won't grow in this part of Vermont.)
I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend as well.
Now. Back to work.
