The prettiest fall colors ever and was across the street so we could enjoy it for a few days. Sadly the people who live there didn't get to enjoy it as much as we did, they were still not living in their home because of Hurricane damages. A little color sprinkled here and there and was just a beautiful color. I have come to the conclusion that Mother Nature does what she wants to do down here or anywhere. When she wants to clear her throat, she does it. I will not complain though, weather just makes life interesting and I do like some seasons during the year.
I had to share what also happened in our Neighborhood. The city came and it was our turn for round 1 of the clean up. Right now I think round 3 of clean up with the big trucks is going on. It was a wonderful site to us all, the trucks and "diggers" as grandson use to call them. We sat in the garage and watched this, gave the workmen thumbs us and we looked around and neighbors all along the street had their lawn chairs just watching it all get cleared up. It felt so good to see the rubble go off to the meridian on Highway 35. That is the only place they have to put so much debris and it was for miles also but now the meridian is getting cleared and that is such a good site. I cannot imaging how much mold and not the best things for you was in the rubble. Silly us we didn't think to wear a mask so it did choke us up later but we lived and no complaints from us.
I do like the way his safety stabilizer was down on the "digger:
Now we have not been as busy as the workers here but I have been painting portraits like a wild woman. I don't know what I am going to do with them but the stack of paintings are growing.
Here are a couple of new paintings I have just finished, there are lots more but I won't bore you with them all. I saw this one on the internet and it just spoke to me and kind of reminds me of the little girl on Golden Compass, I loved that movie so of course I had to paint this. It is mixed media and sitting on my stack of pretties. I like the way the owl and the girl are connecting and the colors just spoke to me.
One more painting Frida Kahol and I wanted to make her softer than the stern paintings and photos I have seen of her. I did take some liberties with her but isn't that an artist's licence? Again it is a mixed media painting.
Now I have not been idle with my Crazy Quilting. This is a beautiful heart a friend let me embellish for her. I love to embellish but not the sewing part. I laugh sometimes I have a rule that if the piece doesn't weigh 100 pounds it just isn't finished. This is a relaxing art form of art for me to do while watching TV and and and Baseball is fixin to start.
I did have a pretty pin I added to this and the sweet Faerie someone sent to me. I sadly don't remember who sent the faerie but a giant thank you for thinking of me.
Well this is what happening in my world today and thank you for stopping by
