Can green beans be creepy? Perhaps slightly creepy? Well this pair definitely have something sinister going on...

2011.096 Autumn Rays

In keeping with the theme from #95...feel the warmth of these Autumn Rays. Yes, I thoroughly love this season. Equally as much as I despise the one that immediately follows. Brrr!

2011.095 Autumn Party Cannon

In honor of my most favorite season I have...wait for it...TWO new pieces!

If Autumn could announce it's arrival with the blast of a party cannon this is what it might look like.  ;o)

2011.094 Soft Strokes

I betcha thought I was gone...didn't ya?  Ha!  Well I'm still here. #94 of the year has finally decided to make itself known so I decided I better share.

I've been thinking a lot about how life has a way of refining us as individuals. Smoothing out the rough spots - polishing up the good stuff and softening the harder edges. That's what #94 is about so here it is. It's called Soft Strokes.

2011.093 "Supersonic Sorbet"

Yesterday in Wichita, KS it was 100 degrees. This was the earliest calendar day since 1967 we've seen triple digit temperatures outside and broke the record for heat on this day in history.

What's a great remedy for a hot "summer" day? cream of course! When I was a little girl my Grandmother always kept a tub of rainbow sherbet in her freezer for just such days.

Today's piece is a celebration of that frozen concotion that makes children (and adults) go "ahhh" when the temperature is 100 degrees on May 9.

2011.092 "Purple Columbine"

It seems I have a number of friends and followers who really like the color purple.  Not my own my favorite color - as you all are well aware - but I admit it is very pretty. I think I admire the color most when I see it in nature.

Yesterday I went to our local botanical gardens with the princesses and Caleb (my 4 nieces and nephew). My expectations weren't high because it's still early spring here but I thought at least it would be a sunny day and we'd probably see some daffodils still hanging on and likely an abundance of tulips. I was spot-on about the tulips but had no idea there were so many exotic varieties.

I was also suprised to see many other flowers in full bloom. Pansies, some smaller vine-growing Roses, Iris and many different varieties of Columbine to name a few. One particular variety of Columbine really grabbed my attention. It was the deepest purple and so vivid I had to stop and stare and, of course, take a picture.

Today's piece is my little tribute to that breathtaking purple Columbine. I'll add the pic I took at the bottom so you can oooh and aaah along with me at it's beauty.

2011.091 "You're Not the [em]Boss of Me"

Ahhh fractals. I know some of you don't quite apprecite them in the same way I do but I find such joy in their complex construction yet simple appearance. It makes me think! All of us really, it makes me think of how each of us is constructed in such a complex manner yet we appear so simple.

Have you ever actually stopped to consider the mechanics involved in your body's daily movements? It's staggering. Or, as my daughter Lori says, "it bottles the mind".
