A few pics from my photo journal.
My allergies have been kicking my butt for the past two weeks.
I was busy painting and crafting new projects for holiday markets, that sadly doesn’t look like they will occur now. Our Governor has tightened restrictions again on our state. I’m tired of it just as everyone else is.
Our weather has continued to be all over the place, we have cool foggy mornings and beautiful warm sunny days followed by torrential downpours from Eta.
I cut a bouquet of flowers the other day, how wonderful is that in the middle of November.
Normally, by now I am getting excited for the holidays and decorating, yes I am one of those people that like to start decorating for Christmas the minute the turkey is finished being carved.
I’m not feeling it at all right now, I hope it is a passing thing and my spirits will pick up soon.
Mr. Red Dirt replaced rotten boards on the front porch and then painted everything. It is so amazing what a difference a fresh coat of paint makes.
After he finished that project, I had him cutting blocks of wood for me for my painting projects. I am working on a line of folk-art style chicks. I have to step back a bit and contemplate the rest of their design.
I painted a few new Christmas/holiday scenes and made cards too. They are available for purchase here at the art wagon or my on-line store.
Each morning when I go out to open the farm stand art wagon, I take in the last precious days of blooming flowers. The sun is just coming up over the horizon and the dew glistens in the low light, I’m lost in a land of tiny beauty. The cobwebs draped over the flowers and decaying plants are like a magical fairyland covered in a web of tightropes. I imagine the fairies come out and swing from the cobwebs balancing precariously for a split second before soaring high in the air in a somersault of pure bliss.
I hope you are all well, thank you for sharing your time with me,
Stay well and safe.
Until next time,
