 Fun little piece I finally finished!

 Linking with Creative Every Day, Mandarin Orange Monday (hooray....I finally have some orange to share) and Inspire Me Monday.
"Little Bear Stuck In A Tree" GIVE-A-WAY
 I love the thought of children playing in trees and leaving behind cute little teddy bears.
"Little Bear Stuck In A Tree" GIVE-A-WAY
I will be hosting a GIVE-A-WAY for this piece.  Stay tuned for details.

What I used:
  •  Pen and Ink
  • Watercolor
  • Collage
  • 8"x 8" 140lbs Watercolor Paper
On another note Paul and I celebrated our20th wedding Anniversary last weekend.  We went to Newport Beach Oregon.  We had so much fun!  I've never been South of Newport so it was an adventure.  I took 300+ pictures but I'll just show you five, for now.
We stopped at a beach called Neptune.  My ears were so cold, lots of wind on the Oregon coast. The rocks were nice and toasty.

Our favorite part, walking along the docks and looking at the boats. Daydreaming of all the fun we would have living on a boat and sailing away.

Paul standing near one of the fish processing facilities.  It was nestled among the gift shops, bakeries and awesome coffee shops.  We discovered cinnamon breve's!

Agate Beach Light house. Right above our hotel!

We hiked down to The Devils Cauldron....seems like it took us 200+ shots to get this great splash. You must be so patient to get the shot.  Man I have respect for the professional landscape photographers.
