For one reason or another… and best reason.

Some where in September I started a painting. I'd been waiting for the right day to go to South Creek, a favorite place of mine, to catch the color.

Meantime I was framing Face to Face like crazy and with some help from my friends Jeanne and Shawn. It got finished in October. I basically have missed the tiny window for Adirondack Autumn which was very slow in coming this year, very Slow.

The business end of this huge art project has been nearly all consuming. The painting of South Creek is on my easel waiting, tempting and scolding me. It will be there for a bit as the Face to Face exhibit will come down next week for one reason. For another wresting the studio into a holiday flavor for the next 3 Sunday Open Studios is on the agenda.

Then most important–my grand boy was born on November 29. He needs some grama time though I am pretty sure it is me needing grand boy time. Travel, holidays, family, life is full.

Here is a piece of work made in September, a challenge for myself. The color of the wild apples in the the ceramic bowl pulled me out of the kitchen, into the pastel box.

This little painting and others are available at the Holiday Open Studio Sundays December 6, 13, 20 12 -5 at my studio in Gabriels. Stop in to see it up close. Cider and cookies too, a small thank you for my friends and patrons.

Best of the Holidays to All!
