I love this new feature of blogspot, where you can preload a post and know that it will come up on the day and at the time you have specified!
By the time this posts, I will have had major surgery, and will still be in the hospital. I expect that I will be recuperating at home for a couple of weeks, so I will likely not be doing any painting during this time. I will post again as soon as I am able to get back to the easel, and have something to show you. I may be able to post some photos... we shall see...
In the meantime, I will be checking out many of your sites and enjoying your latest creations.
I do have a bit of news, though. The painting I donated to the Art Auction for the Bergen's (Whole, Half, Quarters) sold to a private collector in Greece. The auction was a great success, with enough money raised to buy land to build an orphanage in the area of Kenya in which the Bergen's work. They do plan to return and continue the work with the poor and orphans as soon as their health permits. You have to admire their tenacity!
I hope you are enjoying the beauty of fall in whatever part of the world you live. This time of year is full of wonderful surprises - color, trees, flowers, creatures, birds, skies and much more which are all putting on their last show of beauty and color before the cold of winter. I love the crispness in the mornings, the produce at the markets, the brilliant clearness of the air, and the smell of hot coffee as I sit on my "sundeck" catching the first rays of sunlight over the trees in the morning. The mountains already have a good coating of white snow. Against the incredible blue of our Alberta skies, it is a magnificent sight.
Take care, and see you again, God willing, in a couple of weeks.
