Autumn HappinessRead Now
Teal, blue, white &dark pthalo turquoise - these are the colours on my palette today. Colours of the depths of a northern lake, where Whitefish snap & swish in the frigid waters.
Painting layers upon layers of watery blues, teals & turquoise I sporadically glance out the studio window. The sky is still an expanse of various shades of gray. Today ; however, there is definition of clouds - the fluffiness offsets the foreboding chill that the Autumn overcasts typically casts down upon my mind. Steady wind catches bright yellow birch leaves, making them flutter like the butterflies on my window might wish to be doing.
Recieved a wonderful present today from one of my longtime friends! A panda mug to replace my previous pand mug which cracked in half; it was my favourite! What can I say! I was surpringly saddened when it broke & tried to find a replacement, which turned out to be much more difficult than I had anticipated! I had gotten it on a whim at the Calgary Zoo when I took my kids to see the panda exhibit. Anyhoos - imagine my happiness when I received this beauty in the mail!!!! Interesting that it arrived as I was painting with a palette of similar tones.

Looking out onto a cold gray day, bleak colours begin to edge their way into my mind. Gray fixes itself onto my palette; I'm not sure if this colour, this feeling will stay or fade away underneath brighter moods, brighter colours.
