Silver haired lass
It is a busy time for us all, that is for sure, but I am not much inclined toward Black Friday or Cyber Monday so have been busy adding to the GALLERY.I am grateful for the time to do this and hope you like the new well as the old.
All of the images in the gallery are available as reproductions on wood, 8" x 8", ready to hang, $70. They make fun gifts for friends and family members.  Celebrate the women you know and care for.

In spite of the downer of having a bad chest cold and having to cancel most of my activities, the week had a few creative "ups" to it as well.
Two custom pieces got finished at last--Susie and Mary. Both had me wondering at times why I do custom work, but ended up pleasing after a few false starts. (I'm pretty sure most of you artists can identify with the problems here.)
Journal work for November was finished and mailed and December's journal is moving apace.
But the big last there is something on my GALLERY page. While not complete as yet, it is a good start and something put off far too long. Check it out! Just click on the GALLERY page in the right side column to see it.
These small feats remind me of the statement that it is not about judging the work, but DOING it that counts. Back to work!!

Evening view through the bamboo
I've been a bit pissed ever since my husband's bamboo planting began to take out some of my views. Nevertheless, as so often happens, there are some quirky rewards. Peeking through the bamboo and holding it a bit aside I was able to get this shot of the sun's beautiful reflections in clouds over the ocean. I was thrilled...and once again, inspired!

Look closely at all the shapes and colors!
My daughter sent me this picture from Long Island in New York. I was impressed with the myriad colors and shapes and textures presented. Not sure exactly why but it was just what I needed to get myself in creative gear and I have been working non-stop ever since. I cannot wait to see what transpires.
I love the happenstance of it.
What inspires you?
