Arches 140# CP
My watercolor classes have spent the last month working on Christmas cards and winter scenes. This one focuses on the sounds of the holidays -- the tinkle of bells ...
Hope your holiday preparations are joy-filled!!

5" x 7" Alcohol Ink
Outside the trees are mostly bare and
Winter is nudging remaining oak and Bradford pear leaves
from their limbs.
The moon glints the deep, dark night, and
there is a deeper, colder quiet
than in any other season.
The Thanksgiving turkey remains
in leftovers, the holiday rush
has amplified, and
December is knocking at the door.
I say goodbye to autumn
and huddle down,
like the wildlife,
to begin the long, long winter.

12" x 16" Watercolor
November -- the frosts have come, leaves continue to fall, and daylight fades far too quickly ... but the memories of a glorious Fall linger in my mind and on my paintbrush. I stretch my favorite season a bit longer.
Painting allows me to do this, and while temps dip and rise with the passing of the season, I return to the warmth and glow of my autumn memories.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Thank you for all your well wishes and prayers. I"m back home, but my mom continues her battle with Parkinson's Disease and her health continues to fail. She's a fighter or sure and the battles will continue for a while.
Again, thank you for your kindness.

Fall - We have Leaf COLOR!
10" x 13"
We finally have leaf color!! SCARLETS, Purply reds, GOLDS, Yellows, Sunkissed Oranges -- even the oaks have turned that marvelous burnt sienna/crimson!! I have to admit that it's now dangerous for me to drive -- each turn of the road has produced such colorful vista that I either have to stop and take a photo or stop to just gasp! WOW!
We're due for thunderstorms and rain today, so we're out taking photos before the winds remove these beauties from the trees.
Hope your weekend is marvelous and filled with color!
