My mind rewinds to a random memory. A moment when I was with my friends visiting the University of Chicago. There was fresh snow on the ground, but the sun was out and the sky was blue. We found a mathematics book outside of Eckhart Hall that someone dropped in the snow. As art students, it was another language to us and we left it somewhere safe out of the elements for the student to find.

CONGRATULATIONS TO MY NIECE ON FINISHING THE 7TH GRADE! She's a very talented artist with a bright future ahead of her. The portraits and animations she creates are so fun and interesting. To celebrate the start of her summer, I made a piece in the using her style.

FILL UP ON CAFFEINE! The sun is going to be up for a long time. It's the longest day of the year. So, get a cup of joe and enjoy the light. It's what we craved in the snow and cold.

OUR SUMMER COLORS ARE SHOWING!
Art Cats Gallery is featuring the artwork of Mike Kraus, an exclusive series of landscapes both real and imaginative. "Since Muskegon is my hometown, I wanted to create pieces for Art Cats (Gallery) that capture West Michigan's beauty," Kraus said, "It's a uniquely radiant area that you don't fully appreciate until you've been away for a while and return."

+Art Cats Gallery is located in the historic and eclectic Lakeside District of Muskegon, a neighborhood on the shores of Muskegon Lake leading toward Lake Michigan. They carry a fabulous selection of original paintings, prints, pottery, glass, and an amazing array of artist made jewelry. In 2017, Art Cats celebrated 18 years in business and are excited for the future as West Michigan's premier gallery. The work of owner Louise Hopson is always in abundance with her studio adjacent to the gallery.

ADVENTURE AWAITS! The Belgians love their beer. So, we have to get into practice. Try some ales, dubbels, Flemish reds, lambics, lagers, Saisons, stouts, triples, and wheats. This is what you should expect when a small country has 180 breweries. We're going to need extra Belgian (French) Fries, waffles, and chocolate...

My feet sink into the fine beach sand as I make my way toward the bonfire. A case of beer in one hand and a bundle of wood under the other arm are the price of admission. The heat of the sun begins to give way to the cool breeze blowing off the lake. The scent of the shoreline pares perfectly with the changing colors of the sky. I faintly hear my friends voices over the water splashing as they collect wood and prepare for a perfect summer night.

The neighbor's dog was barking again at 5:30 am. From a deep sleep to a constant "auf, auf, auf," any time he's outside. He'll bark at anything and nothing. I couldn't fall back asleep. So, to get through the day I brew an extra large cup of coffee.
