Road Trip!

September in Juneau

Harvest The Dark Time is upon us, though it's not nearly as dark as it will be in December. The change of seasons seems so abrupt; first, school started, then suddenly, there was fresh snow on the mountain tops. It felt like an act of submission, digging out the winter coats and hats. I guess if we have to bow to anything, it might as well be to Nature.

The pre-schoolers came by for their annual harvest, and stood out like shiney apples themselves. My kids are teenagers now, but they came to this very tree with their class many years ago. Pretty soon these little people will be back to gather brilliant orange and red leaves from Mrs. Green's maple tree. Lucky them, to have teachers that impress upon them the bounty and the beauty of their world.

Yellow Transparent I'm still working on paintings for my show in November. Thanks for checking in. I hope you can come to the opening!

I have heard of your work and appreciate the opportunity to visit your website. The energy of your imagination speaks volumes in terms of talent. I look forward to your June opening and again next year at the State Museum.

The new paintings are lovely. I am particularly charmed by "Harvest," with the children picking apples. It triggered so many memories for me, of all the harvests gone by, of holding tiny little hands, now grown, of gathering bright yellow leaves, and walking with my daughters as they swished through damp leaves wearing froggy boots.

I know that a photograph can't capture the texture and colors of a painting. I am so looking forward to coming and seeing the real thing at your opening!
