Today is the official first day of fall, though it has felt like fall around here for weeks. The trees are turning color and the leaves are starting to fall. Originally I wanted to do a painting with colorful fall leaves, but instead I kept thinking about all the colorful flowers which are still in bloom and was drawn to flowers instead.
I've been sick most of the week with the seasons first cold and have not been inspired to do much of anything, let alone create and paint. Yesterday I went to bed at 6:30 and slept through the night until 6:30 this morning! Wow! I'm happy to say that I'm feeling better today, not great, but definitely better. One would sure hope to feel better with all of that sleep!
Today I actually had the urge to do a little bit of painting and this is what I came up with. I'm not very happy with it, but it felt like a good little exercise to shake off all of that sickness and get my creative energy flowing again.
Have a wonderful weekend!
