Love your paintings and the photos of your inspiration...Happy PPF!
Rock stacking is a passion of mine too. How beautifully you have captured those sweet moments of real living, Andrea. It fills my heart !Happy Friday !
Awesome sketches! I love the pebbles pattern. :)
I love every word, every photo. You talk to the deer as it stands and looks at you, talking to you. We have such a place nearby, walking distance, a place to wade in cold river water, with rocks, much like the ones you stack in piles. The roundness of these stones reflects the orbs that create the forces that make them so. Awesomness. Your art is so satisfying.Much Peace
I enjoyed walking with you! Your sketches and photos spoke to me. Thanks! Happy PPF
What wonderfully inspiring photos and paintings from nature!Especially love your paintings of the stones!♥♥♥Happy PPF!!MaryMixed-Media Map Art

I will never tire of looking at your sketch books :) XXX
I agree- I think you should have a go at getting them published. They're THAT good!xxStephanie
Ah such beautiful pieces. I can hear the water trickling over the stones. My friend came face to face with a deer in the woods the other day - quite literally! He said he was not sure which of them jumped in fright the most!
Love everyone of your sketches!!! The stream looks like a wonderfully serene place to be.
2 haiku, deer, painting, and stones arranged so beautifully.......wow....nice job

Very nice! Great journal! Patsy from HeARTworks and papemelroti
Great sketches! I especially love the one with the single green leaf. We don't have those big smooth rocks at our rivers. I love the look of them.
This post is a wonderful Ode to nature!! All so beautifully sketched, the photos are stunning too!! You are always amazing!Hugs Giggles
I very much enjoyed your journal pages. Your script is enchanting.
Great pictures and paintings ... awesome. I loved reading your haiku ... it's really a tiny poem with a deeper meaning. Thank you for sharing.
oh I adore these! the deer looks so dear & perplexed, and the stones are awesome!
Good place for wading indeed.. Too much deep, and I'd sink ;) Lovely haiku & photos.Leo
Aaahhh... a cool spot, water to wade through while the sun is burning and pebbles to play with - wonderful!!! (btw, it cooled down in the Netherlands. I can visit your blog without sweat now, lovely!)
Your paintings give me HUGE smiles!!!! I love the rocks and the top one best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!!!!!!!!!!! HPPF!
I love to stack rocks too....just to be out in nature is so great...add water and rocks and it's a perfect day :0)
Love all the sketches, but especially the rocks and inukshuk. What a fabulous lunch hour.
What a beautiful moment to record, and I love your drawings. The colours and lines on the stone drawings are stunning.
