Lubec, Maine

I hope this doesn't sound too corny but I wanted to dedicate this painted sketch to Ann Marie!

Here's the long-winded story: While camping over the border on our beloved Campobello Island, NB we often cross back into the States to enjoy an awesome playground at the local school. One evening we decided to do that and I volunteered to pick up pizza. Faced with the customary 15 minute loiter in the parking lot, an idea suddenly coalesced from these elements: (a) 15 minutes + (b) all to myself + (c) with my paints in the car + (d) in the middle of a picturesque coastal village = a painted sketch of the house across the street from Kippy's Restaurant! AM, your 21-day challenges prepared me for this moment! =)

An Award

Thank you so much, Ann Marie for giving me a Bella Sinclair Award. I am honored beyond words to be part of such a beautiful group of talented, witty, inspiring and dear creative friends. Please learn more about this award created by Ces in honor of Bella Sinclair.

Some very deserving friends who should receive the Bella Award:
May's artwork is so uplifting and filled with love!
Jim who finds all kinds of creative ways to get those sketches done!
Melonie spotlights inspirational mamas weekly and launched an awesome drama camp for kids!

I know you already got the award but Ann Marie and Michelle, you would have been on my list too!
