My assistant Rudy decided he wanted to help me finish a new book that I am writing. Will be off the presses soon. This is a wonderful place to relax my mind and to let the words flow. My friend was so great to let me use this space for my time of writing this book. Thank you J.

I do love living on the Olympic Peninsula, but I also enjoy going to Seattle on a day excursion....to do some errands. Took this photo with the camera poked out of the sunroof. I was just holding the camera out snapping pictures. It was interesting the shots that I got without looking at the subject at all. Talking about point and click.... that was the day.

What lies beyond the window is calling me to explore. The infinite possibilities of known as well as unknown adventures await me beyond my wildest dreams. I have gone to many places and many lands, with varied adventures and I still see new adventures ahead.

Earlier in the day this beautiful jellyfish was floating serenely just beneath the surface of the water. Jellyfish seem so benign and innocent when in the water, with their tentacles hanging down and undulating in the water. But, now out of the water...still beautiful, but not so graceful on a pile of pebbles.

Stepping onto the wet deck, I quietly watched the rain falling. As I looked around at my gardens and water in the bay my senses were filled with the rich, relaxing smell of damp Earth and the smells of the sea. As I meditated on what was happening around me, a smile slowly appeared on my face. At that moment, I realized that life is unfolding around me in a very delightful way….sounds of rain, waves, leaves slowly falling to the ground, little creatures scurrying about, water dripping from the eves. I think that it is a perfect time for a fire in the chimney.

Kale for the garden...it really looks beautiful, but smells nothing like the scent of a lovely rose. But, alas, tis fall and the roses are nevermore until next year when the roses blossom once again in the warm summer sun. Fall is cool,wet and colorful...great time of the year in the Northwest.

Well... some morning arias that are in the final stages of cleanup and signing... then off to be mounted and framed. There are other larger paintings on the walls, waiting for the final creative touches. It is a wonderful feeling to have the creative spirit flowing so wonderfully right now.

Wikipedia says that a shadow is an area where direct light from a light source cannot reach due to obstruction by an object... which is a very true statement, but I look at shadows from an artistic standpoint. A shadow is just another abstract line to contemplate and incorporate into my thoughts and into a painting. It is really beautiful how light and shadows can interplay with each other to make wonderful patterns in nature and manmade items. Again, I must write... that beauty is everywhere, if we would take time out of our busy day to explore.

Yesterday was a very busy day in the studio and in the house ... finally had a few minutes to relax and enjoy the warm fall afternoon. It was really refreshing to just let go and let everything fall away for a short time. I really love these gorgeous fall afternoons. I wish they would not end.

My eyes constantly search out beauty everywhere and in every environ., in a flower, a mountain, a sonnet, a symphony, and a garden. There is a thrill I feel when I look out at my garden and see the beauty in each flower... a flower, at once so simple, yet so complex... beauty within beauty.

It seems that every morning when I take my walk in the garden and along the beach, I find something new to photograph. This time it is a jellyfish. Like I have always said, be vigilant, there is something new every morning... somewhere. Hoping that everyone has a terrific day.

Sometimes I am so curious about the things around me, that I forget to look upward and see the intricate patterns that the trees and sky make... ever changing with the light, shadows and seasons... abstract forms are all around us. In this busy world we live in, lets take time to look at the things around us in such a way, that we not only look, but actually see with depth the encompassing environs around us.

I found this on the beach this morning... it is alive. A person never knows what surprises await just around the corner of some long forgotten corner of the world. Even when I walk the same area in the mornings... it is really surprising how many new and interesting things are out there to see, especially when we choose to open our eyes and really take time to explore our surroundings.

A new Morning Aria that I have been working on... it is almost at the stage of being finished. Sometimes it takes awhile until i feel that the painting is done. It is at that special moment when I get this feeling of completion... that the circle from being created to being a complete new work is accomplished.

Here sits my adorable assistant Rudy. I think he wants to go for a long swim, but I had to convince him otherwise, since after the beach walk we are going to town and it would not be fitting for him to be all wet in the car. He looked at me in agreement and off to the car he went.
