On my last trip to England I managed to connect with the talented painter Henrie Haldane. We originally met through a women’s business network and I was instantly captivated by her work. Lovely Man and I commissioned this for our house in England, inspired by photographs I’ve taken of nearby lakes.
She now lives in Spain and the colours and light of her new home shine through in her latest works. We commissioned another painting, in a darker palette inspired by this and on my current trip I’ve finally been able to see it in place.
Isn’t it gorgeous?
Henrie can be contacted via her website
Mimosa (both kinds!)
Ok, so not the best photo in the world, but I just love the combinations of colors here: the blue of the vase against the orange-red of the rose hips and pumpkins and the greens and browns of the millet. The whole thing just screams Autumn…
We had a lunar eclipse this week and I hauled myself out of bed at 3am to capture it on (digital) film…
The left and uppermost are the total eclipse stage, often called a Blood Moon since the moon turns red. personally, I think it’s more of a golden colour. The bottom right is at the partial eclipse stage, about 90 minutes later as the moon returned to normal.
Harvest time…and pickings for all 🙂
Autumn is tiptoeing in. Shadows are lengthening and by now in England there would be fiery colors in the hedgerows and a hint of a nip in the air in the mornings… Here in SoCal we are facing another weekend of 90/30+ temperatures and I am beginning to feel nostalgic for real seasons.
So: here’s what I’m missing!
What is your favorite season?
I love September mornings in Southern California!
