Monday's Inspiration Celebration

I woke up on Saturday morning, gazing up at the few leaves left on one of our trees all lit up by the early light, and for the first time in a long time thought it might be fun to make a little painting of them.

I've also been enjoying some of the lovely cloud formations and dramatic light lately and been remembering some work I saw about 13 years ago, by Marilyn Ruseckas. Who knows? Maybe when I pick up some paints, I might pick up some pastels, too. Here's a sample of Ms. Ruseckas's beautiful landscapes:

Thanks as always, Lis, for the Monday Inspiration! So nice to start the week celebrating creativity.
