Simply saying hi and hoping you're enjoying the last moments of your weekend. I just swept a ton of leaves that had fallen from the ash tree onto my studio stairs and am thinking this is just the beginning! And I must deal with the laundry draped over the kitchen chair, since it has been there for several days after all. I'd rather just be outside on this golden afternoon, despite my five hundred allergy sneezes. Ah well, no matter.

I'll return tomorrow with news about some talented local friends and maybe a peek from my sketchbook.
