Early Fall Border Floral

I look forward to each change of season. It helps rev up my creativity. So as the shadows grow bigger & the day light gets a little shorter I'm planning what will keep me busy this winter. We have several projects I'm really looking forward too. Each of which takes lots of thought & careful planning. Learning Illustrator is still at the top of my list. I'm getting better & have set aside a couple weeks to Just do it (thank you nike) I found this floral in my print achieve & quickly adjusted the color to feel early fall. Sometimes a simple exercise like this makes me happy! (hmmm- maybe I'm procrastinating)

Tiny Sheriff

This saying has always made me smile. Luca has started saying it. He just turned four & really has no idea what it means. He has caught on that this is a phrase you say with some authority. I have plans to post this sign on the outside of his door. Somedays, this is unfortunately fairly appropriate. He does have a way of running our life. (think this may apply to kids in general:)

I can feel it around the corner. I've started pulling out my sweaters & quilts. Have you noticed the changing light & the long 4pm shadows?

Part Rooster

Sometimes I think being a parent means becoming part rooster. You rise with the sun. Even on the weekend! The scary part is we're getting use to it :)

Hawaiian Dream

My parents are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. To do so they took a much deserved trip to Hawaii. They have been a wonderful example of a healthy loving marriage for my 3 brothers & I. Over the last few weeks they've been discussing the big trip. Luca has picked up on this. He made this painting at school & had his teacher title it Hawaiin Dream. He often has his teacher write the title he has given the art on the page. Sometimes his titles are abstract other times pretty profound. I found this one profound. He told me he "paints from his heart". I couldn't say it better myself! I'm also showing my collaged squares & planes print to keep with the travel theme but Luca's art steals the show.
