Traveling the back roads in Maine, during the autumn, season  is an awesome experience.  Gets the creative stuff flowing! 
A trip to the apple orchard to collect cider (we are making hard cider again this year!) and then a trip to the antique store in a small village is nothing short of inspiring.  Got some great old books on design and drawing.  Love books! 
Hope you all had a wonderful day too :)

My very first post...

It is fitting that it should be today, the first day of Autumn.   For me the most beautiful time of year.  
Tinges of color have sprung up almost overnight on the lake that I call home much of the year.  The view from my studio, where I now sit, is inspirational, every day!
I have to tell you, however, that the greatest inspiration I have received  in a long time has been from a group of incredible people from around the world who join me everyday on an e-course called "Flying Lessons"  hosted by artist Kelly Rae Roberts.  Without their support and encouragement, I would  never have dared to create a blog.  But here I am! 
They make me brave!
