Home Again!

After two wonderful weeks of travel around Ireland, my mother and I arrived back in the US last weekend, overflowing with stories from our trip, and so grateful and happy to be home again. I took a ton of pictures and filled an entire sketchbook, so I have a lot of follow-up work to do before I'll be ready to post about all that we did and saw. I need to edit down the 800 photos (really!!) to a more manageable number, and finish adding watercolor to the pen and ink sketches I did on location. (They're turning out really nice - can't wait to share them with you!)

For now, here's a peek at our first day in Northern Ireland ...

White Park Bay, near Ballintoy, Northern Ireland

Isn't that beautiful?
I'll post lots more soon! Thanks for your patience. Fall's a busy time of year for my drapery business, so it's challenging trying to fit everything in. All in good time ...

  1. Can't wait to see more beautiful photographs and your artistic version of the trip. You may need to tell us more about the camera you used! Congrats on a trip of a lifetime.

  2. That's a great idea, to include info about my camera, and maybe the sketching materials I used. Thanks for the input!

  3. Welcome home. My son spent 2 weeks at the beginning of August in Ireland with 5 of his neighborhood buddies. It will be interesting to see your photos compared to his. Can't wait to see your sketches!
