Ahhh Autumn...

The cool breeze, the sun casting long shadows in the late afternoon, the vegetable garden starting to turn from green to warm shades of gold. Football. Oh sorry, did I ruin it for you with the "F" word? ;-) oh I like football alright which is probably a good thing because as my sister says we become football widows in the fall. That's ok it gives me time to work on things like this!

Awhile back I started re-illustrating a book my sister wrote. As I evolve as a painter/illustrator I find things I once did seem subpar and I'm fine with that but I really feel this little book of ours is special and it deserves my best. So I've started over. This was the first page and I'm just about done with the first chapter. It feels amazing and since the first chapter is about autumn I wanted to share this. 

I always keep a book close by that inspires me. It reminds me that with dedication and hard work anything is possible. Your dreams will come true!

I also recorded the fact that my water is pretty clean...that almost never happens!

I keep this photo on my phone as a screen saver, to remind me what is waiting for me when I get home from work. My lovely paints and my opportunity to get lost in a dream! 

I hope you all have a dream you can get lost in! Even if it's a book, spending time out in nature, knitting something cozy, or being with the people you love. 

Till next time! :-)
