I often go on a short hike or two with the pup during the week and on weekends I try to go to the woods at least once with the kids, even just for an hour. Being in the woods is relaxing to me, but also inspiring. Seeing the woods through the kids’ eyes is even better. They see the magic that can be missed and I try to capture that when I illustrate children. They are so expressive and naturally happy and free. THIS is my happy place (even during our cold Canadian winters!). What do you do to recharge your battery?
