Summer is winding down.

The garden is glowing with yellow.
The color of the sun.
Summer is moving fast now.
The buzz of the tree locust
tells me in 6 weeks cooler weather will be here.
Soak up the heat while you can.
Today is a day to catch up at home.
Clean the kitchen.
Go to the library. Get groceries.
Enjoy the day.
This morning it is cool enough to
have the morning tea on the deck
and watch the sun rise.
Have a good one.

Set YOUR sights high

Trees Trees My Favorite Thing

Just wanted to share with you
some of my trees. 
                                            I love the structure of the branches.  
                                    Set you sights high in this world.
                                    The view is awesome.

Lost Days.

I was under the weather for 2 days.
Unusual for me.
Hope today is better.
2 days of sleep and vegging is ugh.
No creative juice at all.
Here's to a better day.

Mondays progress in painting

Monday was good.
I started a new lake painting.
This will be a fall scene.

                           I added the 5th layer to the roots painting.
                           I love these colors reminds me of fall.
Taking photos help me see where
 I need to change the painting.
Today I will paint in the rocks.
Have a good day.
I will try and concentrate on painting
and stay away from the sewing machine.

Trees is the theme for Art Leagues October show.
I think I will start a series of art quilts of trees.
                 This past winter I took these tree photos.
                  Nature give us such a wealth of ideas.

                         I think this color way will make a good base.
                         Batik fabrics have such good colors for landscapes.
                         We have had 4.6 inches of rain in two days
                         we really needed the rain the grass was looking crispy.
                         I have come to the conclusion that I like winter
                         cold weather. This summer's heat is tough.
                          Have a blessed Sunday.
