No way to travel to Taos this fall, so much there is uneven ground where I go. The best I know to do about that is to be so grateful I had a lovely long time there last year, and have friends who send me news and great photos with permission to paint from these.
My computer is a great deal of company for me, I keep up with lots of friends I know in face to face relationships and many I know only on line. I am thankful for all of you! This helps keep my life full and pleasant, if not quite to the point of happy, till I get my feet back in under me so to speak. I paint some, have sold a few more small paintings including some onions in a still life two weeks back. sold barely dry. That always encourages a painter.
I sew some for my dolls, have a dear old wooden new to me, from an auction up east. I really enjoy this one, heavy and sturdy and full of mischief. Not a delicate flower.
And each day as the news comes on, there is reason to be thankful for the blessings I have in family , snug home and good friends, and a measure of heath in general. I care deeply about environmental concerns, but have always tried to keep this blog out of politics so will not change now! As ever, I repeat that all of us have a stake in this world we live and breathe in and artists have a strong voice for conservation of this beautiful earth and all its creatures.
