Hi All,

Most of our leaves are down and our woods are looking pretty bare. We still managed a 2 mile walk today and it was still very nice out – hit 68F

Worked on all three of my paintings today -This is my little oil pastel. Am very happy with it except for the lower left corner – need to do some thinking on this

Ludington State Park - Lost Lake Trail - Oil Pastel 9 x 12

Next is my birch trees – I have been going round and round with this one. I reworked the shape of the trees, I reworked the sky, I reworked background. It went from good to bad to ugly and now it is on the way back! Let me know if you have any comments

Finally, here’s my latest oil stick creation – Still working on it, but I love the reflections in the picture.
