We closed up our lake place yesterday. My feelings are bittersweet. I will miss the mountains, the lake, our friends and our weekend “get aways!” Yet I’m looking forward to being home, snuggling with my cat while reading a good book and creating more art! 🙂
Brilliant blue sky,
Air cool and crisp…
Clouds form –
And Autumn begins!
Wishing you a Sunny Sunday Friends! 🙂

Remember when I started this doodle in my sketchbook?
I recently completed it! I really like how it turned out, how about you? 🙂
It is fun to look back and see my progress:
The finished size is approximately 6 x 8 inches.
Now I’m excited to start a new doodle – Maybe I will use this photo of my honeysuckle with its autumn berries as my inspiration!
Aren’t the colors just AMAZING?!!!
Have Fabulous Friday Friends!!! 🙂

I love looking at leaves in the Fall. I am always fascinated by their shape, color and design like this one that has a few holes in it that I found at the lake:
And here is its backside – isn’t it funky? Its pattern is what attracted me to it in the first place!
I enjoy playing with leaf patterns from my memory and imagination too – like I recently did with an Elegant Writer pen in a 9×12 inch watercolor sketchbook:
I’m in love with this pen! 🙂 It is so fun to add water to it and watch it change! A lot like leaves “magically” change color in the fall.
Yet, I wondered what would happen if I added “fall” color to my leaves? So I added my Neocolor water soluble crayons and a little water…
And they MAGICALLY came to life!! May color add a little MAGIC to your day…
Cheers Friends!! 🙂

I recently started this doodle in my sketchbook:
I am reminded of attending our local fair by this doodle. When I was in high school, I would take a spin or two on some of the rides. Now I think it would make me dizzy…lol!
The air is starting to turn crisp here in the Pacific Northwest. And the leaves are just starting to change colors:
It is one of my favorite times of year. How about you? What is your favorite season?
Wishing you a Fabulous Friday! And perhaps a weekend to enjoy the beauty around you!
Cheers Friends! 🙂

Blue and green colors remind me of summer. I recently took these photos at the lake:
I created this pattern in my art journal during my lake vacation. Yesterday, I wrote this haiku:
It says: Floating on the waves, Cool water supports me, I’m weightless and free. I’d like to remember this feeling of freedom.
I created the pattern with a black pen first and then added the watercolors. I found it very meditative to paint.
I start feeling a bit “blue” this time of year knowing that summer will be ending soon! Yet, I do look forward to cooler days as the “greens” start to fade into the golden colors of Fall.
Wishing you a Fabulous Friday, friends – EnJOY the colors of your day! 🙂

I started my poem on Monday of this week and posted my second part on Wednesday. Here is the completion of my poem.
I walked the path today:
You know the one…
Where the Yarrow grows wild:
By the creek:
And nature unfolds her beauty:
As one season ends and the next one begins:
I hope you have enjoyed taking a walk in the woods with me. 🙂
