Fabulous Fall...is Here!!

Ink and Watercolor in
Handbook Watercolor Journal
3.5 x 8.5 inches
We've had rain (yay!!!! much needed!) for the last few days. Today, we awoke to gloriously blue skies, much cooler temperatures and wind! The leaves are coming down fast and furious. Don't think we're going to have much color this year. The piece above was done in about 30 minutes, start to finish.

It captures some of the joy and energy I feel with the sunshine and cooler temperatures (read that as low humidity too)!!! Now, I just need to harness that energy to get some work done and then I can go play—outside!!

Hope you're having a fabulous Fall and taking a moment to savor the season!!

    Thank you, Tyanne! I hope your weather continues to hold. It's shaping up to be another odd weather year, I think.
