Blast of colour on a drear Maine day!

On this day of mists (it really is misty out there) and mellow fruitfulness (our neighbour, Tom, did indeed just bring us a pumpkin he had grown) as I look out the window at the occasional dredging downpours from Kyle, is he a tropical storm or a hurricane...THEY haven't decided yet, I felt I needed an eyeball awakening BLAST OF COLOUR! So I put together some pots of paint I am using at the moment, and a few design layouts I have done as small acrylic paintings, to jolly myself along amidst the sogginess of a house with three damp dogs, sticky floors and steamy windows. Here are the photographic results. Hope it's drier where you are! Anyone for tea?

put the kettle on, I'll be over in a tick, or should I say a click?

Lovely, cheery colours no doubt inspired by your days in Manchester. You need a bit of Fauvism in your life when skies are grey.

Wonderful colours and a brilliant display they all make together! Sounds like a great way to spend a Fall day.
