I'm back from Texas

I've just returned from a short trip to Texas to surprise my little sister on her birthday and to see my new granddaughter. It was a nice break from my routine and I enjoyed seeing my family again. Birthday celebrations and holidays are difficult at times especially when most of my family is in Texas. It was so nice to see them but I was happy to get back to some cooler weather.

It's beginning to feel like fall in the Northwest. Tomorrow I'm going to Leavenworth, WA to see if I can find some local fall color to photograph. I love this time of the year!
Last month my students were painting sunflowers and pumpkins. This month we will be painting autumn leaves and getting a jump on watercolor Christmas Cards. I guess that definately means that summer is over!

The last weekend in October I'm going to the beach to paint. I'll be teaching a workshop in Rockaway Beach. Check my website for more info. It should be a fun trip.

I'll see if I can find some photos from my classes to share with you....check back soon!

Keep those brushes wet!
