I went to Starbucks the other day:
Guess I know the barista too well.
Last week I enjoyed spending time with Casteel–one of my best friends. Over the weekend we helped around Camp Patmos, and during the week we stayed up late and watch TV shows.
Most of these are pictures of us on the challenge course.
One of my favorite paintings.
‘Pink flamingo’ Acrylic paint March 31, 2018
‘Clay Horse’ Clay and acrylic paint 7 September 2018
‘Foal in Barn’ Oil paint on canvas 1 September 2018
Over the past two weeks I have been playing with different types of paint.
The clay horse is my first attempt at clay modeling, And the ‘Foal in Barn’ is the first time I have used oil paint.
I knew oil paint took longer to dry then acrylic, but it turns out oil paint takes a week or two before its dry to the touch, it depends on how thick the paint is. My painting is finally almost dry.
We got up at 5:00 this morning. We are on the way to Lake Ann camp!!!! Before we left, we had fun recreating a picture from 2013.
I am still enjoying raising butterflies and babysitting!
Twenty two Monarchs emerged today!
Last night I set up our black light to try to attract large moths.
I also tried a beer, banana and brown sugar mix that I spread on our trees to try to attract some moths too. I found a tulip tree moth and several little moths like the Isabella tiger moth and a bunch of different types of inch worm moths.
I hope I can try again this weekend and hopefully find a luna moth.
I found my first monarch eggs today. I found 24!
Looking forward to finding more very soon.
