Ready, Set, Summer!

Things are hot, the crops and gardens are growing, and vacations are happening - IT'S SUMMER! I just got back from a short trip out east. What a lovely state Pennsylvania is, and how fun to be in the east over the 4th of July! Visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Valley Forge, and Lancaster County were a few of my stops. I spent my 4th of July at Penn State in State College, and now I know why they are ranked third in the country for best fireworks - WOW!! I returned home with a renewed sense of appreciation for the history of our country and an eager spirit to paint rural America in a whole new way! I am one of those people who are "too busy" to take time off, and at least for a little while, I have now shifted into the category of realizing the importance of taking a little time off to refresh your mind and renew your energy. Wishing you a spectacular July and wishing you all some time to take off and enjoy the wonderful summer days we are having. Stay tuned for new artwork to come : ) Thanks for reading - Bonnie
