Walking toward the county park while in Florida, we came across a wonderful marsh area. It was bathed in foggy light and the greys of rain.... At home, I decided to turn the scene into more of a fall coloring ... On my work screen, the colors of this painting seem a bit off to me -- at home, the light and marsh are more yellow - like the golden color of sea oats....

It rained here last night - buckets and torrents of wind - I got to my friend's house in the dead of dark ... creeping along rural roads trying to see beyond meager headlights -- whew. I was ever relieved to get indoors - warm and dry. We're in for a rainy week it seems ...

We're also scheduled to decorate our holiday tree for the Festival of Trees ... our colors this year - silver and blue -- festive in all this grey rain ... and mostly decorated with natural materials - pine cones sprayed silver and metallic blue, ornamental grass plumes, ivy sprayed silver ...

Hope your day is sunshiney!
