A New Journal...

I hope all of you have had a wonderful weekend!
We have been raking leaves... raking... raking...
There are still oodles of them to fall~
No big hurry...
Do hope before snowfalls!

Sharing snippets from my new art journal...


Sometimes there is a only a few minutes before
bed for a quick little sketch or thought...
"Litchfield"
The perfect little town I grew up in!
Hills and pastures...
Streams and swamps...
Ponds, critters, wild flowers and farm animals...



I fill in with paint when I have a few minutes.

I will be listing more Christmas and winter themed
original art pieces in my Etsy shop tonight~
(Update~ more are listed now... it would
not allow me to add photograhs last night)
THANK YOU for being so patient~
I hope to have more sunny days for photographs...
Tons of goodies to share!
Sweet dreams~
