Friday Photo-Op: Falling in Love

Autumn could possibly be my new favorite season.
After driving around one day this week on a gorgeous, sunny day, with my 
camera sitting next to me in the passenger seat of my car, I felt myself
falling in love.  The colors were absolutely breathtaking!  Intoxicating!
I really don't remember the colors of Fall being this intense.
I'm glad I had my camera with me that day because
I do think that was about the last of it.  The trees are just
about bare today, only a few leaves remain dangling from the branches.
But we have photos to remember...

It's Not Always Black or White

It's Not Always Black and White

This collage was inspired by two new paintings (below) of mine.
I've been applying multiple layers of colors and textures and
watching how they play against each other and POP against the

Yes!  It's true.  All these funky, whimsical, artistic animals are looking
for homes.  I have many old and new animal friends in my studio.
They keep multiplying when I'm not looking and I don't want to
run out of space for them.
  I'm also
quite fearful that the giraffe's necks will soon be laden with
arthritis due to the inability of full extension.   I have a site set-up
here where you can go if you're interested in bringing
one of these creatures into your home.
Thank you.

Friday Photo-Op: Changing Times

These are the colors in my neck of the woods lately;
deep persimmons, royal plums, hunter greens, cranberry.
Ironically I took these photos this past summer up North a bit
in Rhode Island but when I was recently playing with the images, I
saw Halloween, Thanksgiving and all things Autumn.
This weekend (at least in these parts) we get that extra hour which
causes some enjoyment alongside a bit of confusion. Right now I believe
I have it straight; next week at this time it will really be 1:40 instead of
2:40 but it will feel like 12:340ish. And beginning at 8PM tomorrow night
some of the clocks in my house will read eight while others read seven.
This is because I have a husband who likes to save time when he can by
doing things before they really need to get done. Some of us might
call it "efficient". Whatever the case may be, enjoy all those little
moments of your weekend and if you're lucky enough to get sixty
whole extra minutes, enjoy.
Maybe I'll jump into the HUGE pile of leaves in front of my house
with no regard to the time of day it might be.
