She made it back just fine, and we all came through without major damage, thank God! We did lose power, though, and then our backup generator failed. The repairman actually made matters worse by frying some major electrical circuits -- but all that pales in comparison to what happened to so many others. My thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost so much in this storm!
My internet returned today, so I have to celebrate by joining in the fun over at Kim Klassen's cafe! Click here to see some seriously gorgeous images.... The theme today is the color orange! The color is certainly perfect for this season, although there are no leaves even remotely that color around here yet. It's also one of my favorite colors: I love to use it with hot pink and purple.... but more on that another day!

I've been working with silks and wools lately -- can't wait to finish my project so I can show you!

I'll sign off with one more image. This is my youngest daughter, Sam, who just painted a portrait of her grandfather. She is an amazing artist, and wants nothing more than to be finished with high school and happily established in art school, where she can paint all day and all night. (Patience, grasshopper.)
In the meantime, she has decided that she will set up shop as a freelance portrait painter here in our town....
