Spring is always such a beautiful time of renewal. And it’s right around the corner…

Lazy Day on the Skagit River in Mount Vernon, Washington State

I apologize for my long term absence here! There’s much updating to do, but that will have to wait for another day.  Currently I’m back up in Washington State to visit my father, family, and this time around, to attend a school reunion. It’s been a great visit so far and here’s a shot from earlier day: the Skagit River in western Washington state. More photos and stories to come!

Hope you’ve all been well. Speak with you soon! 😀

Day Three, Grapefruit Mural, Clearwater, Florida: Coming to Life

Day 3 in the lovely Florida sun. It’s quite beautiful out as long as you can withstand the high temperature…in the direct sun..for hours. I happen to like it (as long as there’s a breeze,) so no complaints here.

I worked on the two whole grapefruit today; one each on the two panels.

I’ll probably be working on the grapefruit halves tomorrow. Lots of reshaping and defining to do with these. All in all, I’m just happy the blobs are starting to come to life!

More tomorrow…

Another View of Clearwater Beach, Florida

This is from my sunset stroll in the Old Clearwater Bay area this evening: Clearwater Beach, which just recently was voted “Florida’s Best Beach Town 2013” by USA Today.

Looking west from the mainland city of Clearwater out to Clearwater Beach, Florida

That’s what’s new in my world.

Hope everyone’s week got off to a calm start…

Sunset from my Patio

A friend of mine is traveling Europe and the Far East for a month or so.  I’m housesitting and loving it.  I’ve temporarily traded in my Gulf view for that of a calm lake.  No complaints here.

Sunset on the lake.  Peaceful times.

Backyard Bougainvillea: A Flower Within a Flower

I took a few moments this morning to idle away in my sun-filled backyard.  Amazing what you can discover with just a turn of your head.

Happy October to All, Near and Far!

Good morning one and all!  It’s October!  And that means for me, here on the Suncoast of Florida, that tolerable weather is almost upon us! 😉

Beautiful Autumn is on its way!

I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend and speak to you soon!
