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.
