 hello and welcome to my weekly blog!

today I am sharing a mix up of my week.

here is a what fall looks like at my house.

along with a little silliness

and a wip layered painting.

and a few marbling samples that I have been testing

using different mediums.

my husband and I visited our favorite local museum,

norton simon in pasadena.  here are some pictures of 

the tranquil landscape complete with rodin and henry moore sculptures.

have a lovely week.  I so appreciate your visit today 

and enjoy reading your comments.

summer is a distant memory, fall is marching along,

soon to welcome winter.  although in southern 

california season changes are subtle,  it is evident.

looking back,  I am grateful for the fullness of life.

my number one son was married in september

in a beautiful chicago ceremony.  I couldn't be 

more thrilled nor will I forget the look of bliss

on his face all night.  

katelyn wanted some of my art on the table so we decided that

I paint the table numbers.  I decided on painting 4 x 6 canvases.

my friend did the calligraphy numbers.   I love how they turned out!

and I danced the night away.  so much so that 

my heels  disappeared!!

in my paint department, I am adding figures

to my faces.  what fun!!

and I had a birthday.  my friend took

me to one of my favorite places in town, the getty.  

here are some photos from the artist book exhibit.

I tried to capture the artist names but there are a few

that are missing.  I apologize for that.

these photos do not do justice for the spectacular 

dining room.  the light, the view, the sumptuous fabric

and whimsical art all create a festive mood.  

I have gotten out of the rhythm of my normal art routine

since the excitement and preparations for the wedding.

when I come back down to earth I will resume.  for now,

I enjoy each moment and savor the memories.

I hope all is well with you!  thank you for visiting today!
