It seems all I manage to paint are birthday greetings. The house is in turmoil with construction being done all around. There is no place to retreat, the pounding goes on as the siding is put on. OK, it's looking good from the outside but inside everything is off the walls to avoid breakage or other damage. The dust and grit is everywhere as the windows are replaced. I run about with my new dyson, so glad I got it, wondering how I'd keep up with the old vacuum.
Still have the homework to keep up as well.
It'll be great when it's done...and then I can paint the doors and hang everything, give the dyson a rest and open my palette again.

Mohonk Mountain House in the Hudson Valley of NY has many different rooflines. It's an amazing resort not far from New Paltz.

It's a Cover Up!

A very long time ago, in a previous life, I made quilts. This is one of the patterns I sewed. Given the amount of time it took to finish one, I think I'd rather paint them :D

It Must Be Fall

Did you ever wonder what gourds do while you're not looking?

It's Fall and gourds will be gourds!

Not Quite Ready...

The days are shorter and the kids are back to school. The nights are cooler and leaves are already falling off the oaks in my yard. I know what's coming but I am not quite ready fall, just yet.
Just hanging on to the last blooms a little while longer.
