Dolls were always fun to play with when we were young.  We'd spend hours 
playing with them and even played on the front porch at night with a little porch light.   What was your favorite doll?

Thought I would paint a few dolls as a different subject matter....Hope you enjoy them and they bring back memories to you and days of your youth.  Perhaps you had this doll.  I didn't have this one.

Today was spent raking up more of the leaves...wish this season would last longer. We are experiencing almost 70 degree weather here in Indiana near Chicago.   So  Awesome!

 Happy Fall Everyone....the days are still nice and warm here.  Perfect for raking up the leaves....and boy do we get the leaves.  We have had a very colorful fall this year.  Last year I fell and broke a few bones so I was unable to really enjoy it, and I definitely couldn't paint it.
  I made up for it this year.  Took lots of photos and then I have been painting many fall scenes.  Maybe that is why I can't find time to keep this up to date.  I will keep trying to do that.  But in the mean time I will continue to paint.

Enjoy the FALL season.

Fall is in the air....but the color isn't here yet in Indiana.  I did find these Sawtooth Daisies along the side of the road.  
It's October now so time to change the decor and welcome Autumn.  Here's to a new color palette to paint with.

Happy Fall You Al'  

Sorry I haven't posted in a while...but I have excuses.  I had a cornea transplant so visually I have been a bit out of sight.  lol.  Then I have had  trouble getting onto my blog site/sight.  I finally figured out a way to get on.   But as usual with everything in life, they try to improve things and in the process they mess everything up.  Like now...I can't change the point size on this copy.  Fortunately, I remembered I can enlarge the type so I can see it on my monitor.  So if you can not read this, try enlarging your monitor.

In the mean time,   Have a great fall and enjoy the colors.  Come back and watch for my fall colors as I apply them to my watercolor paper.  Stay safe.

Still at the garden in Merrillville, Indiana.   Besides Tulips, it had Daffodils. 
I weeded and fertilized my front gardens yesterday.      Enjoy Summer.
