Hello. This is Heather Smith Jones here. I am an artist and instructor and have just authored my first book Water Paper Paint, Exploring Creativity with Watercolor and Mixed Media which is being published by Quarry Books and will release January 1, 2011. Thank you Summer for inviting me to guest post while you're on vacation, we hope you're having a super time!
One of the features I really enjoy about Summer's blog are her "flickr photo of the day" posts. So I thought I'd share a few film photos from my recent beach vacation, in which I spent a good amount of time simply gazing at the sky and ocean. There's just something about being at the beach that calms and refreshes, don't you think?
And this season when I haven't been gazing at the surroundings, working, and/or gardening, I've enjoyed reading and would like to also share a few of my picks:
The Shell Collector by Anthony Doerr, an exquisite set of short stories by one of my current favorite authors.
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender, which was so enthralling I read it over one weekend.
Half-broke Horses by Jeannette Walls, an amazing tribute to the life and perseverance of the author's grandmother.
Will you share too? What is one of your recent favorite reads?
Thank you Summer and Design is Mine readers for letting me visit today!
