Lost finding an Old Cemetery 

Nice weather and a simple FB post leads us out to near by Moraine State Park and a hiking adventure!

As spring break was coming to an end and a beautiful day appeared, my daughter Taylor and oldest son Colton were ready to get out a while.So after a day in the studio we did just that. I checked a local Facebook page to see if any of the nearby parks were talking about some blooms or butterflies, though I suspected it was to early. But to our surprise someone posted about finding an Old Cemetery  off a horse trail.

Taylor thought they would make excellent photos. I thought now a hike with a purpose.

After what seemed like MANY miles and retracking…here’s a sketch of a lost cemetary we did find. Not the one we were looking for.😕

The iron fence was amazing. Especially  for it age I guessed. Head stones were difficult to read, some shifted and sad that families were too long gone to visit, pray for or maintain.  So maybe by remebering in this sketch it will show their not forgoten. I can tell the story everytime someone  asks about it.

*Still trying to confirm name of this one.

Conducts,drawing, Twisted line,travel sketching for mixed media paint & sip classes for adults and children as well as many others at her location or yours.She works in her home studio while sharing it with family and fellow creatures: Lucy the beagle, Pickles the once independent city slicker, 6 koi, 3 uninvited but welcomed frogs in their pond. Here you can follow along in her life as an artist & business owner in her daily life as a mother,wife. Mixed media is her medium of choose,building up layers of paint, texture, stamping and just about anything else lending to the topic. She enjoys the whispers of encouraging words in her art. Inspiring words can be the focus or whispers among the images she draws and paints. She feels the world around us is filled with criticism and pressure where our own thoughts and being gets forgotten. Sometimes she states encouragement and inspiration boldly as the focus of the piece or just under the surface and among the layers for the discerning eye to discover. Susan continues to work with pen/ink and watercolor using them in her art and in her almost daily sketchbook journals.
