My past weekend was spent here:
The Double Decker Festival (Oxford, MS) had a 24 hour delay due to the severe weather that passed through. We were spared but unfortuantely Yazoo City was not. It is amazing how beautiful the sky can appear after a storm. Driving home was the perfect example. I think this would make a perfect painting. (So perfect that I turned around and stopped the car for a picture.)
And before I forget...I left the show with this...thanks to my parents for the unexpected early bday gift! It's a magnolia ( Mississippi appropriate).

This is not technically art related. (I guess you can put a landscape art twist on it if you wanted.) Last weekend my sweet parents came and helped me with my backyard. (We ended up getting some additional help. Big thanks to Lance and Matt for being on-call). I tried to prepare Dad for the worst. Hopefully I built it up so it didn't end up TOO bad. The first 3 pics are examples of what we had to work with (including a tribute to the streets to my house)!

Having my DSLR with me was the most fun! When my days of client visits were over in Florida I would "b-line" to take pictures before the sun set. I had the perfect weather and I am so very thankful.
After Florida I headed to see a friend in Chicago and perfected the role of tourist. The trip was a blast. I wish I was going back this weekend. I keep trying to find the best way to share my pictures. I think they are fun (I may be biased). I paint primarily from pictures so we will see what comes out of these. I am going to try to share via flickr this time.
Pompano Beach, Hillsboro Inlet, Lighthouse Point:
*In case you were wondering...my pocket camera was found and given to Ryan, which made its way home by way of Ohio. I was disappointed in myself but not surprised, if you know me and cameras.
