Woke up to a cold, winding morning.
Dreaming about heading south.
Besides, I think the weekend is that direction!
Happy Friday!

Mini Sketchbook

Check it out!  I got a 4 x 6" Stillman & Birn softcover sketchbook.
I tend to work in stectchbooks that are much BIGGER.
Time to just play around is something I look forward to & do in the evening at least three or four
times a week.
With the next couple months being jammed packed I was looking to maintain my
sketchbook play but not make myself mental.

The solution is this mini sketchbook.  We'll see!

Cobalt Kapow!

Rows of cut flowers & a marigold.

P.S. I love this shade of blue.  I studied in Mexico for a while in art school.
This blue was everywhere & it's hard to forget.

Friday the 13th

A very spooky night indeed!

I've never found this day to be unlucky for me.
(knock on wood...)
Happy Friday.

Channeling my inner Vera...

Looks like a Vera scarf to me.
If you're not familiar with Vera Neumann look her up.
(she was a wonderful textile designer)

I was inspired to reinterpret this Josef Frank textile from the early 1900s.
(bottom image)
Thought the harvest like theme was very appropriate for this time of year.

Textiles have always held a special place in my heart.  
It's what I got my degree in at R.I.S.D.

Hello there October.

I don't do a shout out for every month but October I'm fond of you.
You're still warm, the sky swirls with falling leaves, & there's a playfulness to you.  A time when kids & adults can play dress up with the reward of candy.  Things can get a little scary but hopefully, not too frightening. (you never know anymore)
October, I'm ready for your dark delights!
