"October Sunday Morning on the Ararat River"

Cooler temperatures have finally arrived.  It was nice to be back outside painting with a friend this morning.  We sat at the water's edge and looked downstream toward a bend in the river enjoying our plein air event. Later we picnicked at Riverside Park in Mt. Airy.

"Six New Ducklings"

What is it about babies?  These six little ones are clustered to face their new world together.  One is larger than all the others.  Maybe he is going to be their protector.

"Pink Hollyhocks"

Standing taller than almost all the other flowers in the garden,  these pink hollyhocks make a joyful statement!  The varying shades of pink delight the eye with some being very bright and others delicate in their tones.

"Hydrangeas by the Fence"

The hydrangeas have been lovely this year.  It's always interesting to watch them change colors from blues to lavenders to pinks and finally to wonderful green tones as they mature through the season.
