Snaps from the week

from top to bottom & left to right:

We brought in one of my new canvases. I wanted to see it on the wall, and in turn, will hopefully figure out what it needs to be completed. I like seeing it in our home and I like painting big! / A little pear tree that we planted last year gave us two pears this season. / A sketchbook entry from Monday. / Part of our shiitake harvest. Needless to say we've been giving some away, eating lots, and also drying some for winter. / Snack of local apple with cinnamon, agave drizzle, and dried cranberries. Yum. / Our Taos vacation book! I'm very pleased with how it turned out. / Jack on the table, not minding his manners, but he thinks he is. / A thrift store find, a basket for cat toys. I never have luck finding good baskets, but I like this one.
