Getting the tools out to create a new patio or a graphic design using Illustrator keeps us very busy. Looking through our photos, I believe we are blessed with a supportive family, a good work ethic, and the creative skills that make our lives more interesting and sweet. Some sarcasm is fun too. Today, I posted a few of my FAVORITE photos from 2017 to now. It was hard to just choose a few. Follow me on Instagram to see more.
Our back yard at Christmas time.
Our patio in process.
My husband is the man with the tools!
The finished patio was designed and built by my husband.
First work, then play, at home in Charlevoix with Dad, Ron, and Mom.

I hope to share smiles, fun and photos with you in the future! The new plan is to create a new WordPress site where I can share more of the process of my artwork and textile designs with a professional.com site.
I would like to stay in touch. Follow this blog MeyerClarkStudio and Instagram and Facebook and my textile designs at ClarkyWorks.
Have a blessed Summer!
Inspired by my freinds on WordPress and the Daily Press, Favorites.
I remember when my parents hired a designer to work on the decor for my bedroom when I was in high school. The curtains and the bed covering were a green and rust paisley pattern. At that time, I was not impressed with the moroccan style motifs. How things change when your taste in decor develops over time. Thanks Mom and Dad for having great taste!
This is a surface design project with a paisley pattern using the pointillism technique. The layering of dots imparts texture and depth. Can’t wait to order the fabric and paper swatches in the pink and the brown to perfect my craft. This is just the beginning of creating graphics for this collection. If you are interested in licensing my designs, please leave me a message through my contact page.

I Painted Today. Pink Petals. This is it. I know it’s a photo, but it moves me like a beautiful painting. This rose is my June Rose. It comes from a very thorny stem with only two flowers. The lonely Rose, I’ll never forget you, even as you fade. Thorny stem, I’ll wait to see your next move, next season or next year. Maybe I’ll find a better spot for you to grow.
Roses in the crystal vase Oma gave me.
Photography Class – Day 10
Theme: Mystery & Lighting Effects.
A photograph can create a certain mood and communicate an idea that transcends its subject. Today, share an image that creates a sense of mystery. A lone mitten on the sidewalk. A trail leading off into the distance. Your dog’s deep brown eyes. Intrigue us with the feeling of uncertainty.

Wonder what happens here after dark? I’m intrigued by the contrast between the light and dark forms and the shadows. What kind of light would be cast at night by the one single mushroom lamp-post, or maybe there are more. What does this walkway lead to and is this safe?
Thanks for reading and wondering!
Photography Class – Day Three
Today, let’s focus on the water and your relationship to water. We have different relationships to and stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it might symbolize a place we’ve left behind, or a location we dream to go.
This is one of my treasured photos of my husband and my Dad. A moment in time captured as they were yukking it up. They had just finished a technical project on the boat and it was time to relax and enjoy the evening with family and friends.
I captured this image with my amazing IPhone 5S.
