Our road trip has brought us full circle, back to home.
Ahhhhh, home... where the last of the garden harvests have been enjoyed - and some preserved for future enjoyment.
This morning at 5am a frost rolled in, not unlike a coastal fog, creating a magic landscape. Winter is coming!!! O excitement: soon the world will be stark and beautiful, all lines and textures and shapes, and going for a simple walk will become a heightened adventure.
Winter is best enjoyed with the security of a warm place to come in to, and to that end I have (finally!) insulated my studio. The freshly-painted white walls are lovely, calm and inspiring.
Also a few paintings have left the studio, creating physical and mental space.
Two more landscapes made during our travels:

And one made a few weeks ago, the day before we embarked on our trip:
