Golden Hickory Leaves - Lin Frye

Golden Hickory Leaves
Originally uploaded by linfrye
The recent rains and winds have removed so many of the leaves off the trees. These hickory leaves came from my backyard - the tree I can watch from my upstairs window. All week, it has been brilliantly golden against the dark green pines. I picked up a few leaves before leaving the house to paint during all the long waiting periods at the hospital. I suppose if there is another case for watercolor, it's its portability. I can sit in a stiff chair with pad and brush in my lap and lose myself --the process meditative and prayerful. It has helped.

As have you ....

Mike's surgery went well, and I thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Blessings and gratitude, and biggest of hugs. Thank you.
