Ahh September Respite

September came in as if it really understood the artificial dates we humans had posted on 30 new days of a proscribed period of time. Whooee the heat spell was broken here in Colorado. All of a sudden the tip tops of trees sported 10 yellow leaves portending a golden future and the temperature actually allowed one to comfortably wear jeans.( I know the teenagers are still wearing shorts but  they will be doing so in December.) Thank goodness those of us of a certain lovely age  finally get it. (one hopes) Or they've given up hope.

So I have some catch  up to do. I saw a great pastel show at the Abend gallery and got to meet some fine pastel artists. I will share this with you , I promise.
I have been painting flowers for an invitational at AUM Gallery and I will give you dates and information later. All the flower painting got me into a rash, throe, consumed in floral painting so here I share a couple with you.
"Next to the Reading Lamp"
At the moment these are the also rans, I have three others I  have selected for the AUM Gallery show. What is really terrific news- Check out one of my all time favorite pastel blogs www.landscapesbychristopher.blogspot.com and pick up the September Pastel Magazine you will see a cool article written about Tom Christopher an Iowa pastelist. And to all of my Iowa pastelist friends with whom I visited Beaune with this summer you have a treasure!

I really enjoy the vivacity of your line and the color nuances of the flower piece. The angle of view is so lively!

Your colors Carole...well, I just love them. When is the show, and we will get to see the others that you have chosen, right?

Thanks! The show is later in October so I am sure I will show them as we get closer to that time. I do love color!
