This Week's All About Colour

We had a beautiful weekend for our 23rd anniversary. It was warm (17C) and sunny. My husband and I, along with Indy hopped the False Creek Ferry to Granville Island. It was the perfect day for a leisurely cruise and lunch in the courtyard.

The trees are spectacular this time of year. Everywhere you look, it's a colour feast for the eyes. I can't tell you how happy this makes me. Autumn is so incredibly beautiful in this part of Canada.

Over the weekend, I picked up some new stencils and some new shades of paint, so I made some prints on my gelli plate. It's always fun to experiment with colours.

This week and next are going to be busy and then things will slow down for a bit as I have surgery on my wrist and arm on Nov. 19th. NOT looking forward to having bones sawed (I am actually a bit freaked out at the prospect) but it's been almost 8 months since I broke my wrist for the 4th time and it's not healing on it's own, so surgery's a necessary evil. I am hoping everything goes smoothly and at the very least, it will relieve the pain. I am tired of being either in a cast or splint after all these months. I'd like full use (such as it is) of my right hand back!

I saw this last week and I wanted to share it with you-I found it uplifting. I hope you do too!

Happy anniversary to you both! What beautiful colors you have captured and shared as the perfect symbol of the many colors of your creative life! Hoping the surgery goes well and you can put the entire wrist issue behind you as a result.
