Yeah, I know... Autumn is now four months gone. But I'm slow about posting my own pics. These are from October 2007, if I recall correctly. As always: click on images to see larger versions in a new window.

Finally, from the same time period, here's a painting more or less inspired by the afternoon walks represented in these photographs.

I cringe every time I think about posting one of my own paintings. Frankly, I know that I'm not rockin' the painterly skillz, and I'm even worse when it comes to photographing paintings. But since I so much enjoy looking at work that others post, I figure it's only fair that I share something from my own easel. And it's been my motto (from way back in my performance days) to "face the flame" -- that is, to confront those fears & anxieties and just get on with the show already!
