Cold Rainy Day

I had off of work today... it was cold and rainy, a good day to paint, and that I did. I
decided to make a few cards. While I painted I listened to an audio book, Christmas Carol , by Charles Dickens.... what a delightful morning that was..... but the best was yet to come....

Christina and lil John stopped by for a cup of tea, and that was perfect


for a cold rainy day....

A Day well spent!





Now it is all about texture

So now that the color is gone, the trees are bare and the grasses have changed to a rainbow of browns... Texture is the dominant theme...and I love texture.....
I see it everywhere now, weeds, trees grasses, birds nests... even the berries that decorate the dark branches....

Texture is one of the main elements in design... and now our landscape seems to be full of it .


You now can see the bare bones of trees and their wonderful shapes, I love the evergreens that seem to add lovely dark green to the gray landscape...

Take a walk and enjoy the textures, the variety is endless....
