Autumn Splendor

Aspens along Hwy 550 with Engineer Mountain in the background

It seems like only a few moments stolen here and there, quiet places, warm sun and gentle breezes, the frozen remains of summer's wildflowers, and September has come and gone. In the blink of an eye.

Most of September was spent in the studio, reaching deep into the well for inspiration and solace. Andre has come around and is now back on trac...tor? That is what he tells me, "I am a tractor, not a horse"

A thoroughbred race filly is also in the works, and is providing much joy as she is so young and full of energy and spirit. Her and Andre are quite opposite :) Sorry there are no photos yet, she isn't far enough a long to share just yet.
