Sunny Sundays – Revised

Hi!  Jack here –

I tried to explain to my mom that it was neither sunny nor Sunday but she ignored me.

As you can see, “Jack Frost” was visiting us this morning:

Brrr, it was really cold on my paws…. so I just stayed inside like any intelligent cat would do!

Back to Saturday, uh, today…

Mom wanted me to tell you that she has decided to take a break from posting her art on Saturday and Sunday.  I know she really enjoys it but she has been kind of tired lately.  More naps with me but she says she doesn’t get anything else done around the house.

I really don’t see that there is anything more important than a nap except maybe eating but she didn’t agree with me.  Fancy that!

Anyway, enjoy your weekend and make time for that nap!  I know I will!  🙂

Swirls of Fall

I recently purchased a set of Rembrandt Soft Pastels.  I have never done much with soft pastels so I wanted to experiment with them in my sketchbook.

I really enjoyed using watercolor with them:

orange swirls with soft pastels and wc

The swirls of color reminded me of some photos I took after a frost:

Yellow Dahlia in fall

Like this Dahlia – I love the brilliant blue sky next to the golden color!

The simplicity of the following design:

swirls in red, green & purple

Reminded me of the swirling breath of Jack Frost as it freezes whatever lies in its path:

The beauty of these Dahlias still takes my breath away!

The circles in this design:

Reminded me of this bird bath:

Charlie's Bird bath

A simple design of endless love I have for nature.

May you notice the beautiful shapes in nature’s handiwork today!

Happy Fall!  🙂
