art work

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web. ~Pablo Picasso


a cold front finally pushed through and the air is cool and crisp  windows are opened wide fall cleaning has commenced attacking the cabinets and closets major purging going on I feel the need to start anew!

    the summer pinks are fading fast slowly replaced by the warm golds, oranges, reds and purples   the change is inevitable and I’m at peace with that in a few days, it will be Labor Day weekend it’s been a great summer but it’s time to move on and I’m looking forward to an equally great autumn here in New England
