As I said last month, I kicked off the month of September while on a trip to my hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. During September, the monsoons hung around Tucson a bit, but things started to cool down slightly, too. Mid-month, I made my way to the top of Mount Lemmon for some gorgeous hiking in the forest and some lovely mid-70s temperatures. It rains up there quite often, including for the last third of my hike. No complaints here, though! I even felt almost cold there for a moment. :-)
Aaron and I also went to see Tumacácori National Historical Park, about 20 miles north of the Mexican border. Of course, when it was built, it was actually in Mexico. The old church is really beautiful and in such a nice setting.
I was signed up to host a booth at a little art fair at the apartments where we live at the end of September, and I focused all month on cranking out artwork to sell. In total, I created 19 pieces! I think it was my best month since shifting gears in life and returning to my creative roots. We had a great turnout at the fair and I sold quite a few original paintings as well as some of my cards.
And now, the roundup of what I created, some of which is still available. Shop now ›
