For me, 2018 has been the year of closure. I've closed my Flickr and SmugMug accounts. They weren't working for me and Flickr had changed the limits of the free account so I decided to close both.

I decided to sell my house. It hasn't sold yet, but I hope the Spring will bring a better housing market and a more motivated realtor. And I've changed a few things at home that I'd 'always done', just out of habit actually. But I finally asked myself why I keep doing these things that do not bring me pleasure.

I admit I often view the world through rose colored glasses. I tend to remember the good times and forget the bad. I think that is a mostly healthy attitude, but sometimes a clear, honest look is necessary. Painful, but necessary.

I've been working on some watercolor paintings. I'm beginning to get some results that at least I want to keep. 

Thankful that it's over!

Autumn in the stream.

Who's the fairest deer of all?

As you know, this is my least favorite time of year, but snippets like these lift my spirits.

Color of Fall

Fall color came slowly but now we're at peak - at least here in my neighborhood. I didn't make a trip to North Georgia this year, the first time in quite a few years. It's always a hit-or-miss on the peak color there and I haven't hit it correctly too many times. Anyway, lots of color here and I'm not even trying to limit how many photos I take of the leaves as they turn.

Coffee & Painting

An excellent combination as long as I don't dip my brush into my coffee.
