Fall Walk - THANK YOU - Fossibear!

9" x 12"
Arches 140#CP

A quiet pause in the day
Save the scuffles
of leaves under
our feet ....

My sincere appreciaton to Fossibear for allowing me to paint from his incredible work ....!Please stop by to visit his wonderful flickr stream (www.flickr.com/photos/fossibear/)!

Our walk through the park this weekend graced us with a quiteness that we haven't experienced there in a long while. There were no ball games, no soccer games, not too many other walkers... just that rare autumnal hush that seems to quiet time and surround us with a long sigh. Only our feet making their way through leaf litter made any sound ....

Back to work and though a short week for the Thanksgiving holidays, it's been busy with meetings, budgets, planning meetings, and more changes. Somehow the immersion back to the workweek makes a week of art seem ages ago! LOL

We're in for some rain today and tomorrow, but the temperatures have -- including the flowering shrubs -- confused. Last week, we needed winter jackets and mittens; this week, our students are in shorts and flip flops ... and instead of readying for the winter, so many plants are putting out another flush of growth.

I'm having some computer issues at work, making comments and viewing difficult. I hope these will be remedied soon.

Hope your day is wonderful!

Oh my goodness Lin -- absolutely gorgeus -- the light coming through the trees and the frame of trees and foliage -- a perfect blend. I breathed a big Awwwwwwwww when I opened your blog. Truly a fall delight.

We've been in the 50-60's with rain all week so far and it feels weird. So many people sick with allergies that should have been gone early October. Loved your poem.
Hugs,
Lorraine

Beautiful feel to this!!! Lovely work, Lin.

Went plein air painting this morning and froze. It was much too damp to be near the water, and there was no sunshine. I'm not used to that yet. Have a great day!
