I'll end this post with some old paintings I did back before my last trip to Hawaii. These hang in my house and are a nice reminder of the paradise feelings that destination can give.

It's Matt! How is the 9 pack going?
Overwatch? There was a lot over overwatch cosplay.
Mr. and Mrs. Packman! So cool!
My daughter was Mabel and I was Dipper. She was adorable! We even had a photo request.
Skellator! What an awesome cosplay!
We have so many ideas for next year already! I think we are starting up our journals again for our round robin. I have a little more work to do on the one I have. I hope to finish up my horse painting....finally! I just need to work on the grass a bit. I want to start on another painting, but I cannot find a good backdrop for the image I want to use. I would love to take some time to get some photos around the valley too. The grass and super bloom are fading. It was so very beautiful. I have thoroughly enjoyed soaking it all in, but have not thought to pull over and photo everything. The photos never look as good as what I see.
My family ditched me with Darth Vader. Pretty intimidating to see him alone. He is so tall! Kylo Ren was angrier though. The Castle looked amazing. The reflection in the water was beautiful. We really had a nice trip.
Had some fun creating in a journal exchange. Always so intimidating. Everyone seems to have a well established style, but mine feel forced. I just did some sketches similar to what I would have done in my journal. I had to fit in a sketch of my cat Stella. The eucalyptus branch is from the beautiful tree that used to be in our parking lot. The landlord took it down which made me so sad! I will forever miss the sound of the wind blowing through it's branches and the sound of the birds and bees that loved it.
So this was most of my winter this/last year. I did have one Christmas themed decoration on my table. I have always loved this little LEGO gingerbread house. We made gingerbread cookies this year. They were so good! The tiny houses were too cute to eat. So many happy and warm memories!
