Spring Into Summer Adventures

Dear Friend,  

Wow, we sure had a nice relaxing time at the lake camping. Be sure to enjoy watching Rachelle's video of "Camping with Frogs" (below) if you would like to share in our experience. We are heading out camping again this month to another spot and expect to have some amazing things to share with you on the blogs and in next month's newsletter

We're happy to announce that we each were juried into the upcoming special show with the Society of Animal Artists at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute. This show has an environmental theme which is near and dear to us as we see it constantly changing and rarely for the better. One of the reasons we are moving from our home here in TN is the loss of peace and quiet due mostly to the constant drone of traffic down below in the city.

I've included a few recent photos below to show what we have been up to with our time. Rachelle finished her latest portrait of her niece and I've been keeping busy with the SAA tasks. We expect June through August to be mostly laid back. ~ Wes

Siegrist greenhouse and garden

The hydroponic garden is still doing great and the garden outside is also doing really well despite the encroaching forest. This is a shot of our greenhouse and garden from the back deck. It's what we see from our studio window.

Living room remodel
The built-in aquarium and entertainment cabinet have been removed as we start to remodel the house. Of everything we've sold and changed so far, we do miss the fish. Our former neighbor, still a dear friend, has adopted all of them.

deck remodel
The deck rails need some adjustments so everything had to be taken off of them for that part of the reconstruction. Our studio is the window on the end.
