Girl in a Church Dress

Today was one of those days. The lighting was right, the music inspiring, the children at school. I had a chance to do this painting from start to finish. I will post the steps in the coming days on where this piece started. I am just so pleased with the outcome, I needed to share.

Now off to enjoy a late summer evening. Have a wonderful long weekend.

Summertime is Over

Well, I am returning to my online world! For those of you who regularly follow my blog, thanks for popping by. A very special thanks for those who took the time to note my absence and send me emails or comments. They meant so much to me!

So, where was I? I really needed some reconnecting time with my family this year. Alberta has a short but sweet summer so I took full advantage of those beautiful days to experience my kids in action. It was good.

I have also been thinking of where I want to be taking my artwork over the next while. I have a few ideas, I will be going into them in more depth over the coming weeks. I feel like switching gears. Often autumn does that for me. Far more of a "turning over a new leaf" than New Years.

That smell of fall just ever so slightly in the air is a reminder of new routines and experiences to come. Thanks for checking back! Keep tuning in to see whats coming next.
