Marsh- Thank you Sharon!

Though the blossoms and chartreuse greens in the landscape say 'spring' -- our sudden plunge into into freezing temperatures suggest that we're back to fall ...! With a sweatshirt back on and a chill in the air, I was inspired by Sharon's wonderful capture of a fall river walk and she graciously permitted me to use her photo as a reference for this painting!


I love Sharon's work -- from flowers to landscapes - each image is so beautiful and inspirating!!! Take a look yourself!

I spent the last few days preparing for the plant sale, repotting plants, cleaning bits of the greenhouse, making signs, and all the minute details that go into a 'sale-a-bration' fundraiser. I'll be as busy next week as well - so my computer time has been shortened indeed.

Today our volunteers return and despite the last few cool days, our kale, chard, lettuce are ready for harvest for the hungry. We'll also work a bit outdoors to tidy up the grounds -- so again, a busy day.

Hope your day is great ... Stay warm ....!

WOW. Through you I have come to love the marshes. I admit they always sounded dull and dangerous to me before. What gorgeous color Lin. I love the fall so it was a treat to have it again in the midst of 20 degree temps last night.

The trees, the water and it's reflections and the marsh grasses -- all beautifully painted. So much to enjoy in this painting I could look and look and look.

Yes, sweatshirts not really put away here so wearing them again. We know April here and all the mini winters it has.
Big hugs,

Hallo Lin. Ich staune immer wieder aufs Neue, wie Du schön malen kannst.
Archespapier ein Thema auch für mich... ha, ha.
Die weichen Lasuren sind fantastisch und sehr schön detailliert. Kompliment.
