Glorious end of November hues on silk jacquard

Glorious end of November hues on silk jacquard

This scarf has been hanging around and not been chosen when I sent off groupings od scarves, but today the colors in it spoke to me. Colors for the end of November, perhaps not all these days are glorious but the purples and browns, russets reach for the sky of which we see more now that leaves have swirled to the ground.

Now with my galleries stocked and the group shows I am taking part in all set up, I am determined to make my shop on be more tempting to the online shopper. Always something to keep me busy, but I do like most of this work which keeps me going.

My tarot spoke of building a bridge to my future...sigh.  This drawing of oil pastel, washed with turpentine on pebbled paper was added to my sketchbook today.  I am now in the very middle of the book.  It is a far bigger project than I had thought when I took it on "in 5 minutes".  I am enjoying the brief exercises I am undertaking.  It is a valuable project.

Enjoy your weekend.  Let the creativity flow.

"Glorious" is just the word for those hues. What a gorgeous scarf!

And the little sketch is quite compelling.
