Morning Inspiration.

My little Chihuahua girl likes to wake up before the sun. This means I too have to get up before the sun. I actually enjoy it. Coffee always tastes better right before daylight.

I'm always a bit uncomfortable to take her out for her morning "necessary" trip while it's still dark. Our yard backs up to a small patch of forrest inhabited by deer, fox, ground hogs and about 1000 birds, including some huge birds of prey. A split-rail fence keeps the big guys out but the little guys know how to make their way in. NiNi delights in chasing anything that moves. I don't think she understands that just about everything is bigger than she is.

Occasionally, we time our morning outing just right and get to experience the sun peeking over the hills. How close God feels during this time!

So feeling inspired, I'm heading off now to do a little painting for my Country Pleasures 2019 calendar. Here's the front of the 2017 Calendar. It's available right now!

Hope you have a wonderfully inspired day!!

My favorite time of year...

Things are just beginning to get colorful here in Chester County, PA. Cool temps in the morning and evening make for some perfect fall days. It seems that the critters... deer, fox, wild rabbits and squirrels are enjoying the season also. They are all so busy! And so bold!

I took a drive to the Amish Farmer's Market the other day. Pumpkins and gourds of all sizes and shapes spilled across the front of the store. I'm really attracted the the white ones this year. 

Are you starting to see lots of color? Some years I stay so focused in my studio that I totally miss the beauty of this season. This year I plan to enjoy and savor all the wonderful things this "thankful" season has to offer!



Holiday Flag and Card Shop Open!

I am so happy to be able to share some of the flags and cards that feature my art. I have a limited number to offer since these are my personal samples sent to me from the great companies I get to work with.

Check out the rest of the flags and cards here.

I hope you are enjoying this season as much as I am... and the leaves haven't really begun to change around here!
