 Hello October

Gee whiz fall is here! It seems that the summer just flew by but when I look back on it I think of all the neat things I had a chance to do and the great people I met.

Early summer brought high school graduation parties and summer festivals. Then our cousins from Italy arrived for a visit - their first time in the U.S.!

I took another botanical illustration course at the the New York Botanical Garden. I cannot say enough good things about the continuing education program. Excellent instruction with options for in-person, hybrid, or online. I prefer online to avoid the traffic.  The image above is a mushroom in pen & ink with a micron 01 pen. 

At the end of August I was at Hog Island

 Audubon Camp

Fine instructors, new friends, and great food. If you have a chance to attend one of their sessions you will not be disappointed. 

I am also honored to have several artworks displayed in juried and invitational shows in Connecticut this fall. 

I hope you are enjoying the change of seasons while living a simple creative life.

Happy Holidays

Sending Christmas cards is a tradition for me. Usually I write a letter detailing what we have been up to, but this year I chose to simplify by uploading a photo to Shutterfly and pressing the order button. Simple is better.

I send cards to let the recipient know that I value them and remember them at this time of year. I could email, text, or send greetings to one-and-all on social media, but it is not the same as sending (or receiving) a card. Think of what you like. Would you like to find a card, or better yet, a card and a note in the mailbox?

I make time to write cards because I value the connection and want to stay in touch with friends. It's a simple thing that brightens my day.
