The past two days have been cold, wet, and grey here.
My morning walks now require a jacket.
And a few stops to snap some photos, of course!
My pumpkin patch fizzled out so I had to pluck the six pumpkins that did grow, even though they were still rather tiny.
That's okay though because as far as I am concerned, Fall has arrived and I'm feeling very inspired by it!
Even our country cow friends are enjoying the cooler temperatures.
They came out to greet me after I wrapped up my walk....
And then I dashed into the house, dampened by the misty rain.
More coffee to brew, for warming my bones.
I was on a mission.
I had sketched my ideas onto sticky notes.
For days, thinking about pumpkin dolls...
but commission work must come first.
So I have been painting like a mad woman!
Getting closer to be finished...
(and closer to making pumpkin dolls)...
when I get another commission just yesterday!
Friends, I must pinch myself often because I can't believe that at last, I really am living my dream. I always have work now.
The only problem that I seem to have is finding the time to create for fun, with no instructions, and to use whatever mediums that I may be in the mood for that day. You know, that free spirit stuff that artists have.
After painting all mid morning, I decided that I was going to make it all work! I was indeed, going to start bringing Mr. Pumpkin doll to life, afterall, October will soon be here!
And so, the sculpting has begun!
I can do it all,
With practice, of course! (Time management).
Tell me what you are doing to welcome Fall!!!
Until next time,
