First Fall Day



We are settling into our new home after the move. Painting has slowed as I find a new schedule that works, its coming together slowly and I am finding more and more time. My husband is settling into a new job and Flora is much more active now. She even took her first steps the other day. 
 Fall is upon us, and as I was walking through a meadow with Flora I was inspired to make a simple, breezy portrait of the first hint of autumn.

Zinnias




Zinnias are out and Queen Ann's lace is covering the Pennsylvannia fields. Bees, black wasps and butterflies humm the ending of summer. I'm painting, cleaning the house for guests, dreaming up stamps to make and planning birthdays.

Sea Memories



Inspired by our trip to the beach, I did a horseshoe crab watercolor. They come to shore to mate and then cannot get back into the sea. While throwing them back I was impressed by their fossil like shape. They definitely left an impression! 


A view from the house we stayed in.


Me and Flora exploring a windy beach.

Rooting Roses




Some of my Mother's Day roses started rooting in the vase. I planted one in thin soil after rubbing rooting hormone on the stem to help things along. Let's hope it works!

I'm fighting off another cold today, so I've stayed out of the studio except for packaging paintings. I'm itching to do some more red finches tomorrow.
