Because Sometimes You Just Need To Be Slow

I have been slowly working on this sketch after walking around the yard one morning after the temperature almost got down to freezing during the night. I knew that soon all the lovely plants would be gone for the winter. So I gathered sprigs from the ones that were still growing and spread them out on my table to photograph. We have had several frosts since then. I’m glad I took the time to make this collection.

  1. Oh my gosh Fay…I so love this. You are such an inspiration.
    We have had no hint of frost yet in central Wisconsin but it won’t be too long now.
    I did a similar thing up at our cabin in the north woods. check my blog for that one ginny stiles.blogspot.com

  2. Today is the perfect time to run out and get a sketchbook! Start the habit, enjoy the process, watch your work improve as you put in the pen miles. It is addicting and therapeutic. 😍 The process is the goal. The result will take care of itself.

  3. And what a beautiful spread that is! I love the mix of colors. Out of all the different artists and styles I follow and admire, your’s Faye is still my favorite…..and the one that inspired me to give it a try myself! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  4. Wow, so much inspiration, joie de vivre, attention to details, pouring out all your love and talent to catch those precious last offerings by Mother Nature. I would absolutely put your sketchbook under glass and enjoy it daily at a wall of our rental – it’s SO beautiful.
    Tks for coming back from time to time, Fay. I greatly appreciate seeing you and thinking that you are well.
