    While sweeping the steps today I saw,....

 ...woven fields,

                            and hanging up the broom I came across,..... ancient wood.....

                           around the house were,.......spider caves,

              and on the table,....

                                          buttons of mahogany.

 Pyrrharctia Isabella

While Searching for a reference image for a drawing, I found a lovely
old book on the bookshelf.


Feeling the pull of early Fall days, I found the image I was looking for.

                             My work table and ever present cat, Emma.

                    After many days and weeks of sketching, drawing and painting,
                                            my little painting is complete.

           Wooly Bear aka Woollybear caterpillar.
           Forecaster of cold winters? or just a cuddly harbinger of Fall,
           I delight when I see you.
           Always calling me over to share your quiet world, we sit together and are content.
