I love all the shades of green and blue and yellow and brown and black created with the granulation of these pigments in this combination!
It was a fun pumpkin to create!
I’m excited to be one of the artists featured at one of our local town’s Sip and Stroll events this Thursday evening in Zelienople, PA.
I have the great honor of being invited by my friends at Boutique 16063 – an amazing women’s boutique with the sweetest owner and team that making shopping there so much fun and make you feel like a million bucks when you walk out!
I’ll have some prints of this painting there and some cards (as well as a great selection of some of my other watercolor originals and framed prints as well as copies of the two children’s books I wrote and illustrated, Klaus the Mouse and Lucas the Lucky Lion).
Charlie relaxing in the Dog Days of Autumn – October, 2018 – Mars, PA
The Dog Days of Autumn – A Charlie Guest Post.
Who says dogs like summer best?
I say hold your horses…
The dog days of summer are for the birds!
Maybe it is the elephant in the room, or maybe you consider me pig-headed, but I’m going to let the cat out of the bag
and tell you Fall is the cat’s meow!
It just makes me mad as a hornet
and really gets my goat
when folks don’t realize the lion’s share of enjoyment weasels out in the crisp breeze of Autumn.
Are you like a fish out of water when the leaves start to turn? I promise Autumn is not a one trick pony.
You’ve got to believe me – I wouldn’t hurt a fly… Fish or cut bait, and enjoy the beauty.
So when summer’s gone to the dogs
and I get ants in my pants,
I watch like a hawk
for the smoldering heat and humidity to quit cold turkey
And I head out on a wild goose chase
and let sleeping dogs lie
for the red herring is truly
the Dog Days of Autumn!

Crispness in the air.
Leaves turning colors and falling.
Front porch sitting.
Taking time to breathe.
Neighbor dog visits.
Swinging the heaviness of the day away.
Cherish the moments.
Cheers & Hugs,
After two very heavy-hearted days being riveted to the hearing of Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford and Brett Kavanaugh, a late Friday afternoon on the front porch swinging with one grandbaby while hubby held the other was just what was needed. The air turned crisp, Charlie rolled in the grass, the neighbor’s dog visited. And for just a moment….. the world was perfect. Cherish the moments!
