Getting the tools out to create a new patio or a graphic design using Illustrator keeps us very busy. Looking through our photos, I believe we are blessed with a supportive family, a good work ethic, and the creative skills that make our lives more interesting and sweet. Some sarcasm is fun too. Today, I posted a few of my FAVORITE photos from 2017 to now. It was hard to just choose a few. Follow me on Instagram to see more.

I hope to share smiles, fun and photos with you in the future! The new plan is to create a new WordPress site where I can share more of the process of my artwork and textile designs with a professional.com site.

I would like to stay in touch. Follow this blog MeyerClarkStudio and Instagram and Facebook and my textile designs at ClarkyWorks.

Have a blessed Summer!

Bees Don’t Digress

Taking time to smell the roses, and photograph them is not always easy, especially when you have a few minutes in the morning before work.  I am a nature lover, so I always get up early to enjoy my morning time.  I’ve been known to get distracted by the bumble bees when I’m having my morning coffee. Their buzzing is very busy and non-stop. But, the cardinal is busy too, hopping around in our tomato plants. I smiled when he finally flew to our Rose of Sharon tree, and then I hurried to captured his portrait. 

 

 

A busy backyard.

The birds are not visiting as much when we are working, but the bees don’t care.

I digress, Time to stop and smell the roses.

Guaranteed to Satisfy

As promised, our video from Mackinac Island on July the fourth. It was a very satisfying experience having lunch at the Grand Hotel. The view of the Straits of Mackinac was stunning from the highest point in the cupola, where we enjoyed a tropical cocktail. We always look forward to our next visit, satisfaction guaranteed! In the mean time, we have lots of photos to cherish and post later!

Do you have a favorite vacation memory?

Only in Michigan! The sunset on the Straits of Mackinac from the Grand Hotel is breathtaking!

 

“A Perfect Day on Mackinac Island” by Jeff Blyth, focuses on the beauty
and uniqueness of the Island.  More on this topic coming soon from our
