Ansley's One Month Birthday

Little Miss Ansley with her daddy celebrating her one month old birthday! Such a cutie pie. We were lucky enough to have them visit us over the weekend. It had only been 3 weeks since we had seen her but she had filled out and seemed much more alert. Of course, she is the most adorable grand baby in the world:)

ASPEN GOLD and Fall Colors

Watercolor - 11x15

I love fall when the leaves turn warm shades of yellow, orange and rust. I reflected some of those colors into the bark of the aspen trees and spattered gold around the background to suggest falling leaves.

Pretty in Pink

Everyone said it was amazing to have grandchildren but I didn't really believe them until little Ansley showed up. Here she is at 10 days old, all pretty in pink!

HOLLYHOCKS and Out Houses

Watercolor Batik on rice paper - 12x19

For eight years in Colorado Springs I was the coordinator for the Alzheimer's Memories in the Making Art Program for people with dementia. Whenever I see hollyhocks I am reminded of the story one of the artists told about her childhood. She said that they always planted hollyhocks near the outhouse so that the ladies could politely ask "where are your hollyhocks" when they needed to head outside - too cute!

Watercolor on gesso - 14x18

I have always loved the water, whether at a lake or the ocean and think it would be so much fun to learn to sail. There are five beautiful lakes around the Knoxville area so maybe now is the time to take the plunge!
