We’re currently preparing for the upcoming Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) in Charleston, SC. and the NatureWorks show in Tulsa, OK. While we’ve spent most of our time at the easels this past week, Wes finally finished framing our miniature paintings for the two upcoming shows.  We also celebrated another birthday this past week, so I decided to put into use some of what we’ve learned while recently watching The Great British Bake Off!  I made a dark chocolate cake with mint flavored cream cheese buttercream frosting, and of course as always, calorie free . . . HA!

Our friend Sharon has an upcoming birthday, so we surprised her with a cake and party, and surprised she was indeed!  Her husband Tom, as well as friends Fred and Barb were all more than delighted to help her celebrate by eating the yummy cake!

We were blessed with a day of beautiful weather this past week, so we headed into Cades Cove with Tom and Sharon to spend the afternoon hiking about woods.  With clear blue skies above and milder temps, we felt as if we were in heaven to say the least!  We even felt breezes that were almost warm at times, which truly felt amazing!  At one point, we sat by a stream to enjoy an afternoon snack and Tom and I couldn’t resist wading in the icy water.  Since my feet went numb as soon as I stepped in, it didn’t feel too bad . . . Ha Ha!

I finished  my miniature landscape painting featuring a gorgeous sunset, which we photographed while in Florida at Christmas.  It was actually Christmas evening, when my parents joined Wes and I as we walked a trail through a beautiful marsh near their home.  You cane see below I’m adding the 76th bird to the wee flock flying above the marsh.  This painting along with about 50 others can be seen and purchased at SEWE this coming weekend, and we’re looking forward to seeing many of you there!
