Autumn - 10x20

Somehow, Autumn slipped in thru the back door. Internally, my body registered the shift long before my brain did. I've made two types of soup this week, loaded up on several different types of artisan (i.e. "hearty") breads and also got some butternut squash ready to put in the oven. Temperatures are indeed cooler and the dreaded humidity has taken the back road out of town.

The shift in temps this week was quite dramatic--it threw my body for a bit of a loop. The cooler, damp weather isn't always great for my body. I don't think I'm the only one who's been feeling achy and fatigued.

Which just makes it all that more appealing to make things cozy at home by making soup and baking cookies. It feels like some sort of primitive internal response to the changes. Geese fly south. I'll stay home and make soup! 

In the Wind - 22x28

And interestingly enough as I've started new pieces in the studio, I've noticed that my color palette is shifting. The new abstracts that I started several weeks ago feature grays and browns (plus lots of texture).  I will be showing several of these new abstracts at the Art Crawl next month.

Next month! Four weeks! Yikes!!!
