Happy Monday! Today is all about the Lake Powell trip Chris and I went on last week. Chris’s family does two big boating trips each year; one to Bear Lake and one to Lake Powell. Chris first took me to Lake Powell when we were dating and I fell in love. It just get’s better and better every time we go.

Peonies Medium: oil on canvas Dimensions: 30 x 40 x .5 in         Hi lovelies! I love sharing my talent with others and I’ve done quite a few projects for clients, for school, and for family over the years.
