A visit to the caves

Water reflections at Luray Caverns
We went to Luray Caverns this weekend with the 'rents and had a great time exploring the crazy rock formations.  Many points on the tour felt like I walked into a scene from the Gooney's.  We passed a wishing well, a piano, and there was even talk of human bones.  Chester Copperpot?  No.  Booby traps? maybe.

New paintings on etsy

Discovered these oldies in my studio closet and thought I'd put them in my shop.  Check out the full listing(s) here.

What I'm reading

Source: via Sheena on Pinterest

I chose "Wild" as my next book to read this summer because it is the first selection from Oprah's new book club - book club 2.0.  I'm a nerd for book clubs so it wasn't a hard decision to join the bandwagon.  I will say I enjoy the book quite a bit and look forward to reading the rest.  Books!

In other weekend news, we found wonderful tenants for our Baltimore house.  It was a productive couple days.  Hope you enjoyed yourselves,

In Chiang Mai, Thailand there is a multi-acre elephant sanctuary.  We spent the day helping feed and bath the elephants.  Even the dogs loved a splash in the river.  Did you know mud works as sunscreen for their leathery skin?  Right after we cleaned them, they immediately rolled in a mud pit.  (You can see a muddy elephant -with the mud pit in the background -in picture one)

Great article the New York Times about putting artists into NYC public schools.  It's a quick paragraph so I'm hoping there will be a follow-up.  Read it here:
