Stone Forest Hiatus

Thank you so much for following Stone Forest Studio Notes. Stone Forest is going on hiatus for a while, as I explore a different kind of "forest." It was pretty quiet around here after the birth of that second child, anyway.

Please accept this warm invitation to follow my new blog: Friendly Rock.

It's an outdoor-loving, ad-free parenting blog with camping itineraries, recipes, RV info, outdoor tips, crafts, kid stories, and plenty of midlife reflection. There might be a little art now and then, too.

also on Facebook at

You can subscribe by email over there and never miss a beat, with all the new fun coming straight to your inbox.

I'll leave all the Stone Forest posts in place for now, in case anyone wants to use that nice "How to Paint Clouds" tutorial. And, who knows, the art career could come 'round again. Lots of things do.

Happy trails, happy creating, and I hope to see you over at Friendly Rock!
