hello . . . .

As summer comes to an end, visual cues hint of the season to come.
A simple leaf on the ground, 2 crows frolicking in the yard, the yellowing
of leaves in the kitchen garden, beckoning harvest time.
Each year I am impatient for fall . . . maybe it's awaiting the "cues" to inspire
new friends, maybe it's just that it holds my "Palette", the one that makes me feel at peace.
Year 'round, my colors of choice are the rich reds, golds, olive greens and pumpkin hues.
They surround us in our home and these colors of the earth have always been my favorites
to work with in the studio.

As I begin working on pieces for the 10th. anniversary Ghoultide Gathering,
I'll pop in with a few fall friends here as well!

Enjoy!
