A Heist for Halloween

Have you seen THE ART OF THE STEAL?
The documentary follows the true story of the Barnes Foundation, 
a private collection of art valued at more than 25 billion dollars.
If you haven't seen it, add it to your queue.
Wishing you all a very happy Halloween!
Thank you all for your well wishes.
Our area has a bit of flooding and downed trees.
We are still without electricity but I'm hopeful that it will be restored today.
I hope you are all staying warm and dry.

You Might Need Shades

You might need shades for viewing this unabashedly bright gouache painting!
Yes, the colors are crazy, but I'm working on a few more and can't stop now.
I'm enjoying this visual tangent.

Outside In

living with plants
I think it's essential to bring the outside in and live with plants. 
Especially in the fall and winter seasons when a little bit of greenery is so welcome.

living with plants no.2
Just a few plants, unless you were blessed with a green thumb, 
in which case, do you have any tips for me?
It's a challenge to keep them alive.  I'm a plant killer, you see.
This year I've brought in my angel vine topiaries, succulents and my bay tree.

living with plants no.3
Every year I give them a little pep talk:
Just hold on a few months and you can go back outside again.
I promise to water you and find a sunny spot. I really do.
Do you bring the outside in?
