Stay obsessed by what you love...........



______Days are full and as much as I try to keep order, I find less time to write about it. The seasons change and sounds of the birds in early morning make me long to show through my work how this makes me feel. I hope that my design work will bring some of that to the fore. Someone said, "Do what you know, do what you love".
I only wish.
There are many ways to put nature in the work we all do. That is my guiding inspiration and a way to leave a part of myself in this beautiful world.______

I was so happy to get back to Colorado and actually have a garden and beautiful flowers on the deck. The chipmunks haven't been that busy.

Ouray Artist's Alpine Holiday

I was very happy to have this photograph and a watercolor juried into a show in Colorado this month. A very good inspiration to paint more and photograph much more!
We are in Ridgway for about 6 weeks...It will be beautiful and inspiring.

This is from the Birmingham Gardens a few years ago. I am still in love with it.
We tried to see' Brideshead Revisited' tonight. Huge storm in Atlanta...electricity went off in the theater and it is probably still off.....5 hours later!

I took a short detour when I drove my grandaughter home this evening. I used to live across from this beautiful scene and as I get older I find it more and more lovely. It is peaceful and a very special place.

It just isn't fair that eeryone cannot see the way the Cimmarons light up at sunset. It is magical and mystical.

An interesting chance to see the difference a ttv makes in a photograph. All reversed and so vintage looking.

Just amazing how quickly a child can learn. We listened to Josie play and it was beautiful and a total joy.
