Journal Entry July 22, 2018

I used Gelatos and pens by Faber Castell for doing the background and coloring in some of the stencils. I love their products. Liquitex Acrylic paint and mediums, Micron Pens, Prismacolor colored pencils, Gellyroll pens, Faber Castell Gelatos and pens, Windsor &Newton and Jane Davenport Watercolors are must-haves in my art supplies. I also like Jim Holtz and Dylusions products.

I ❤ Fort Lauderdale

I never get tired of taking pictures of the beaches in Florida but Fort Lauderdale is especially close to my heart since this is my hometown.

“Peek-a-Boo”

Here’s another shot I took back in 2013 at John Easterlin Park in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Click on the link to learn more about the park or book a campsite. Definitely check it out next time you’re in the Fort Lauderdale area.  Maybe you’ll get lucky and see one of the gorgeous peacocks that the park is known for.  Easterlin Park

“Who Are You Looking At?”

Several years ago, in 2013, I treated myself and bought an awesome, high-quality camera, a Sony Cybershot.  I still use it to this day and highly recommend it.  The very first time I used it, I went to John Easterlin Park in Fort Lauderdale near my Grandmother’s house.  That park is lovely and has many childhood memories for me.  My Mother used to go there as a child also.  The park is known for its population of stunning peacock’s but, sadly, I didn’t spot any when I went there to take some pictures.  This one white duck in particular caught my interest and I think it was reciprocated! The featured image is one of him looking at me while I photographed him.  He sure is one beautiful animal and I will be posting some more pictures of him. Next time you’re in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, check out John Easterlin Park which is a little hidden gem in South Florida.  They have a small campground area also.  Here’s a link to the park’s website: Easterlin Park
