The most exquisite acorns are falling down the street. Having a true Fall, as it is here in Ohio, I love the crisp evening air, the turning leaves, the feel of Fall in the air. The cornfields are going dead and dry. Shelley made the most delicious stew with turnips and beef and apple cider from the farmer's market.

Summer's End

As the hot, humid days of summer subside, I wanted to share some photos of the food vendors at the Art Show in Westerville. I've never seen such elaborate food carts!

Farmer's Market

The Harvest is in full swing at the Worthington Farmer's Market. Corn, Heirloom Tomatoes, Pumpkins and squashes. Mmmmmmm

Mural of Schnauzers

For the past two weeks I have been painting a surprise Birthday mural for a friend. Yesterday was the unveiling, so I can post them here! It's interesting to work on a mural based on animals that interact with me everyday, I can try to capture their unique personalities and that glint of mischief in their eyes. Miss Boo is a Senior Citizen, and the Alpha dog, so her right place was on the cushion. Sawyer is the young Schemer, so he sits below, plotting his next move. The miniature portrait is of Bentley who passed away some time ago, but I wanted him in the mural as a memorial. It was such fun to work on. I hope that this may be the beginning of painting murals in the Columbus area.

New Steampunk SHTUFFF!

I think I hit on a cool idea! I took these little ladies watch faces that I've had in a jar for over a year now, and I formed them into beads. I think the look is very different from the typical Steampunk gear.

Franklin Park Conservatory of Flowers

Yesterday my friends and I went to the Conservatory, which is more like an Art Museum with plants. Everywhere you look, you see blown glass sculptures, mostly by Dale Chihuly, tucked in amongst the orchids, palms and Koi Pond. I loved it.
