Even though around here it seems the hottest weather has waited for September and October and that could make it seem like this is still summer, it is indeed the Fall season. How do I know? When I look at the ground it is covered with bits that have fallen off of trees; little pods, nuts, leaves, green olives, small twigs, larger branches. While I was out trimming the dried Sunflowers, all around me things were dropping. A plop here, a plunk there, as walnuts fell off the trees, one every few seconds. Loud crinkly flutters as plate sized Sycamore leaves drifted down to the ground. The squirrels were in a nut gathering daze, not caring that I, the two kittens, and the dog were a mere yard or two away.
I haven't been painting a lot this past week, since I've been attending to the details of prepping for the exhibit. I've just updated my website, adding new images and reorganizing a bit. I think I've simplified it and hopefully it will be easier to navigate - let me know what you think. Also, I just sent out an email blast this week about the Atmospheric Exhibition with all the key dates.
