happy fall y'all!!

hey everybody!!

.......fall is officially here and it makes me so very happy! the very next day after my last post....well......i got my artsy fartsy mojo back...yay!!

.....weird how that works......and so i have painting AND gardening AND decorating here and there......pulling out some natural elements which speak to me......

more gourds, raffia, dried seed pods from my black eyed Susan's, wheat.....

a most loverly muted palette of browns and umber's and white tones....

so here are some random shots i took around the house today......

including some of the paintings i am working on.....

it helps me, to see them on the computer screen.......

tweaking will ensue...




















it seems i am settling into a once a week posting on my bloggy......

in order to spend my quality time...

and true focus...

on my art...

and love

of the great outdoors.

this mildness...in the weather....the doors and windows open....white cotton curtains swaying in the breeze....kitty's playing with the bugs on the other side of the screens....the sound of children playing outdoors.....

this...

is the pay off for the long. harsh. summer...

the reward....

THANKYOU....not taken lightly.

fall is so bittersweet and fleeting.

i want to drink in every single luscious moment.

and

have fun

playing.

mmm

mmm

i hope you are playing too?.

Erin once a week is good enough to get to see your art. The horse paintings are so pretty. I blog just twice a week because life is more than computing and I putter around outside and inside too. olive

Very, very pretty! So happy you got new inspiration. I love the little raffia tassels and the big tub of gourds. I definitely need more of those. It's a little challenge to decorate here because there's more places to decorate and I'm using some items already. I went to the farmer's market Saturday to buy more gourds, but there weren't many, only ones made into bird houses. But, I bought lots of good food! Have fun enjoying your peaceful days!

Dear Erin
You have no idea how your art touches me. Your colors are so soft and have a ~quite feel~. When I look at your paintings it calms my heart.. I just adore your horses, although I love all your art..

See you next week
