Happy Happy Friday!

Rise and shine!
The morning light in my studio is lovely!
I've been working away and voila!
A new painting in my shop today!
Rose hips, vines, and insects abound.
Happy Friday!

Rainy Days

After a solid week of wet weather I admit I'm ready for a little sunshine.
This is coming from a girl who loves grey skies.
It does make everything lush and green, though. 
Clearly my cottage garden is happy. 
Plus, I can lounge around reading all day without an ounce of guilt!
After all, it is Sunday.

Picking colors is endless fun!
An autumn color story. 
I'm loving tawny browns, grey and black. 
I'm working on new patterns for Spoonflower. Something a little different.

Our Evening Stroll

Silhouettes and the setting sun.
Rolling hills and rock walls.

Studio | Quail

I've been revisiting the brambles and thickets filled with tangled vines and dead wood.
This plump little quail just landed in my shop! A harbinger of fall days ahead.
