Words of late artist Frank Howell...I totally relate!

"There are few days off and no retirement from this entanglement of knowledge, passion and vision that will be molded and converted into creative expression. There are no guarantees of acceptance, understanding or reward, but...the noise inside the mind never ceases. I will paint today, tonight and for as many tomorrows as I am given..."

Front Entry Dressed for Fall

Just thought I would share another fall post.  Just finished it last night, hanging the wreath as a little green tree frog hung out with me...

Do you see the little scarecrow? Last year, he was on a stick in a plant; this year, he's been attached with hot glue to my wreath...I recycle elements from year to year as long as they look good.

Everything on the wreath this year was recycled from years before, including the wreath itself.  It was a long length of grapevine that I wound around to make a loose wreath...I just wired it all together at the top, making a loop to attach to the doorknocker.

...and another element- the chalkboard.  Hubby made this for me years ago to use on the sidewalk of our art gallery in town.  You can still see "shadows" of previous notices...

I attached the black bird to the top with hot glue, so that he doesn't try to fly away!

On the floor, in front of the chalkboard, I've added a seasonal mum in a vintage crock, and a green plant that's still hanging around from summer.  I stuck another little scarecrow into the green plant to bring it into fall.

The red mum is just about to be in full bloom.

Some looks at the big picture...

Happy Fall Y'all!
