Today after the gym I went to HEB and there I bought a pumpkin spice candle. I also found artichokes, and artichokes are everything! I realized I’m actually happy that fall is here. How can I not welcome pumpkin spice candles and lovely artichokes? The candle spread its warm fragrance while I worked on this watercolor of the two little boys who traveled with us to College Station earlier this month. Later I boiled the artichokes and ate two. I walked the dog and the night heron was nowhere in sight. But I know he’s around and that’s what matters. I suppose at some point he’ll fly away and spend winter in a warmer climate. I wonder where he goes. As for me, I’m full of inspiration these days! I’m already thinking about what I want to paint tomorrow!
