See ya later :>)

Fall Colors and Volcanoes

Heading to the land of vivid fall colors, I hope I haven't missed the peak!

I'm sure I'll be busy playing with a new baby and catching up with new houses and many other changes but I really want to capture a few shots of foliage.
The weather here is perfect, sunny and warmer, no rain! Who could ask for a better fall day. Even clear enough to capture Mt St Helens and Mt Hood in the distance. Yes, it snowed on the mountains...just beautiful!

What a gorgeous day!

Travel in my future...

Just love to travel...will be off quite soon:>) Not too sure there will be any material for painting, I live in hope. Visiting family and catching up with all that is new with them. Lots of changes happened this year. I will have the opportunity to enjoy cider and some crisp tart apples! Am hoping for some crisp and cool fall days, as well.

Have an excellent day!

A Good Day at the Beach

Any day is in Oregon, although it's really been a challenge of late. I this most recent case the umbrella isn't to provide some shade. It may be time to seek shelter but the surf is wild and beautiful and quite hypnotic.
See you later!

Snow Fascination

At this moment I am fascinated by snow-scapes. I'm quite sure it's a passing thing and will be over soon after my first real encounter.
First snow is quite beautiful and signals a rest for the earth and flora.
Hibernation could be a good thing if faced with bitter cold and lack of food source.
So glad to have heat and grocery stores :>)
Hoping to work on a little stormy beach and some flowers to break things up...
Wishing all a healthy, happy, productive day!

Starting out...

Been thinking of starting this forever and thought I'd finally give it a shot. Watercolors are my addiction. Just can't make it through a day without a brush in my hand.
Each time the season changes or some thing catches my eye, even produce at the grocery store, the urge to paint takes over.

Miniature paintings have been a pleasure to create. A piece of original art
measuring 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches can be placed anywhere. Propped on an easel, in a magnet frame, in an album or matted and framed and hung on the wall. It's an affordable way for everyone to collect and display art.

The weather is changing and there will not be any summer days at the beach for quite awhile. Actually, last week I took a little side trip to the coast and got nailed by wind and rain. It was beautiful, just not a sunbathing opportunity.

I'm thinking it will be good material for a painting, I'll let you know how it turns out.
