autumn update

Hi all,

November! Where has the autumn gone? It is a beautiful season as well as a busy season. Weekdays are swallowed up by things domestic and school routines (plus residual physio and medical appointments from the accident – soon to thankfully taper off). Weekends have been largely given to outings, hikes, seasonal festivals and adventures. Not much time or energy turned to painting or blogging.  My latest painting is not quite finished – so maybe a little pictorial recap is in order.

Wherever you are I hope you too are having a cozy November Sunday morning (or soon will be). Enjoy. – HD
