Gratitude. Giving. Thankful.

Autumn is in full swing with the rich colors starting to pop all around.






(from some camera moments….suitable for framing!)



Even though it’s been a very wet season so far, Autumn brings out my warm and fuzzy side. I dream of beautiful Fall colors, the last harvest, and family and friends as we gather around the table and the hearth. I am so personally attracted to this color palette, too…..
As a child, my family would take a Sunday afternoon ride as “family time” together, typically to “the farm”. And I continue to enjoy those rides and take in the views. I love just riding around and looking at nature’s glory, which is so well expressed in this season. Are you with me in these moments? If not, take a breath and take it all in… will be glad you did take that time to enjoy, because the beauty will give in to the days of Winter soon….
Surely, I find this time of year a time of great gratitude for the bounty of this past year. Gratitude makes my heart feel full and I know that I am so fortunate to have the friends that I do, a family who loves me even when I get a bit off track, and the ability to see the great beauty in this world.




As you know, I normally paint my creations into being but I decided to take my trusty camera phone and take some Fall pictures to share with you this time, too. Photography is a wonderful art form and I love a good photo gallery in the home as well as oil paintings.
