is there anything more soothing then the smell of lavender
it was such a wonderful first fall weekend
 what a perfect day to harvest

I spent time cleaning my garage
 making space for all my garden ornaments and furniture
wondering through the garden, taking photos and planning next years design
it will be sad to see the garden go
but I will have this bundle to remind me
that spring will come again
and I will be ready to get my finger in the dirt
and nurture it back to its glory once again

encaustic class

it's been a long 9 months since my last class
I've been dreaming about painting
 since leaving the hospital over 3 months ago
I have so many ideas in my head
it was a bit hard to focus at first
i had a vision of something that just didn't want to work
so instead of getting frustrated i put it aside
and started the piece above
working with several shades of blue
i just started covering the canvas
something soothing about blue
(like looking at clouds)
it made me forget about the first piece
and thinking about clouds why not add some white
and while i was at it i thought i would through in a silver lining

it was great to be back in heather's class
