That's a sneak peek of a little project I am working on, mainly for my own amusement. I just love the colours. Autumn is such a pretty time of year! My one regret right now is that while I thought about it, I didn't plan to host an Autumn/Hallowe'en exchange. Hallowe'en is my favourite holiday-it was my beloved Gramps' birthday and it holds really good memories for me. I wish I had decided to do it.*sad face*
Anyway...time to update "the list" so here goes:
Reading: I am 17 chapters into Dan Brown's new novel "The Lost Symbol". Usually it doesn't take me very long to read books, but with the chronic headache condition I have, it's become hard to read for long periods of time. On a good day I can still do it, but on a bad day, it's impossible. It's okay though-it just means I savour each book I read that much more.
Watching: All my fav shows are back on except for two. So far I am watching House, The Amazing Race, Survivor, Grey's Anatomy and SO You Think You Can Dance. Rescue Me is on a different schedule and just had the season finale and Breaking Bad hasn't returned yet.
I've tried to follow Heros, I hung in there last season which was painful, but if I am not engaged by this week's ep which I have on tape, then I am going to stop watching. It's just gotten to convoluted (too many superfluous characters) to follow. It's too bad too because the first couple of seasons were so engaging.
Listening: Yesterday Jesse Cook released a new album, "The Samba Frontier" which I promptly downloaded from iTunes. It's a wonderful album if you like flamenco guitar. His music is deeply textured and delicious. I listen to his music in the studio and often when I can't sleep. It's very soothing.
Canadian singer-songwriter Jann Arden also has a new album out, "Free". My favourite track is "A Million Miles Away". I believe she's at the top of the iTunes charts. Way to go Jann!
Anticipating: Thanksgiving is coming up in 2 weeks, along with the Cranberry Fest. I am hoping that the weather is good for that. It's always a good time and a wonderful celebration of the holidays. Our 19th wedding anniversary is also coming up at the end of October, so there's another reason to celebrate!
Dreaming: I am mulling over the possibility of hosting an art circle-sort of a party/art making day with friends. Not sure when I will have time for this, but it's been rattling around in the back of my head for awhile. Food, friends, art, what's not to love about that?
Doing: Working towards finishing a couple projects I have on the go and doing a bit of purging/reorganizing in the studio. My goal is to have all the art want to frame, framed and hung by the end of the year. It mainly requires measuring and a trip or two to Ikea for the big black chunky frames I like. It's one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
Creating: Working on a fall themed project (see pic above) just for fun.
So what are YOU doing? I really want to know!
