My Backyard Trees

Journal Tip In -- My backyard trees.  Though most of the leaves are on the ground, the landscape is still mighty colorful.  The view is looking out from my dining room window.

Cutchogue Old Suffolk Free Library

Journal Tip In - Cutchogue Old Suffolk Free Library -  While in New York last week, I had an opportunity to take a day to sketch with my friend Joan Szalay Tavolott​.  It was a beautifully warm day, filled with sunshine and the brilliance of fall colors.  We traveled to the North Fork of Long Island and visited the town of Cutchogue.  We stopped at what we thought was a church and sketched it before realizing that this building had been converted to a beautiful library.  We went inside to enjoy a terrific art show, and then later explored the Art Guild Gallery with a variety of oils, watercolors, acrylics, sculptures, paper crafts, pottery and more.   Thank you Joan for a really fabulous time!

My Driveway

Journal - Returning to North Carolina after helping settle my mom's effects brought me rain and cold -- but still marvelous colors.  There are more leaves on the ground it seems than on the trees ... trying to catch the color before winter settles in.

Journal - Despite the rainy days, the trees are so vibrant and the leaves so colorful, that I continue to try to capture them in my journal.
