Fall Colors 2013

October 20, 2013

The fall colors this year were okayyyyy…but not spectacular.   Not like they were in 2012 or 2008.

But I still managed to find some nice pockets of color.

No colors in this last one, but it was a gorgeous October day, and warm enough to paddle in shorts until sunset .



I Finally Finished the #$*%! Thing…!

October 10, 2013

Sometimes when I take a photo, I know it’s going to be a painting.  I just don’t know when I’ll get around to actually painting it.

It can be days.  Or years.

I took this one a year ago.


I started painting it last May.

Painting 1 IMG_1875

And then put it away, and started it again.

And then put it away and started it again.

And then it was summer, and fishing started,.  So even though it was 95%  done, I  put it away again  for 4 months.

Now, it’s FINALLY finished.

And I am DONE with it.

(Phew!   This was painful).
