Hope your having a good weekend...
thought I'd share a little animation I made :)

A clear day spent at the sea side in September is a real gift....

of color, warmth, sun shine and blue sky.
Oxygen, sounds and smells of the sea, birds cruising above
running barefoot on warm rocks, tide pools like landscapes of their own
to watch and gently touch...

Couldn't have asked for a nicer Sunday.

His target was obscured by the fullness of life

Anticipating the Fall and the fullness of summer at it's ending

A Geisha dressing
stars that stream past in the night
(oh) how I need a bath

Playing along with Nadine this weekend with the drawing challenge theme
It's good to be back :)

Taking some time looking at life from different angles- does that happen
at the change of every season? You know when you get a hint that the world
around you is really moving- the light is different, the nights are cooler, the kids suddenly 
are bigger, the cat is older- funny how time is continuous mostly~ except when you round a "corner"
 so to speak and get a big picture view- just for a moment of how changed it really can be.

Last week a juvenile cardinal flew into our window and knocked himself out!
Luckily my son saw it happen and ran outside to find him- he was crumpled up on the grass looking 
pretty miserable- like in an "Ugh my aching head!" kind of way
see below

We sat with him for about 20 minutes talking softly and stroking his feathers very gently
 We tried to put him down a few times but he was really clamped onto
my Son's hand- it was a treat to be able to see one of these birds up close, and of course
nice to think we somehow managed to help him a little after this crisis...

But I suppose he would have managed fine on his own- he did us the favor of keeping his company
and we had quite a nice chat about if birds see stars when they hit their heads- like in cartoons or not :)

Back for a little peep in with a much happier "back" :)
Kids were in camp this past week so I got a lot of down time...
Started some new gouache paintings- (isn't gouache the best!)
and tended to some yard work that was being ignored.

Some fancy hair do the littlest came home with.
Now we are off to New Hampshire for a swimming weekend-
Hope yours is too!
