This little pond is just a few minutes walk from my house. As you can see the last of the leaves are off the trees and the sky is that characteristic November grey.

This painting is from a few years ago but the pond, the water, the sky and the trees look exactly the same this year as they did then.

I'm afraid I'm suffering from a bit of bloggers burn out and painting-a-day-itis. I no longer have any interest what so ever in producing a daily painting. There I said it!  I am enjoying my watercolor sketches and working on larger paintings that use techniques that take much longer and cannot be produced in one day. Growth and change are good. In fact they are essential to an artist. 

So if you are following me on the Daily Painters Gallery(www.dailypainters.com) I want to let you know that my time there is limited. I will be leaving at the end of the year.

I will still post over at Daily Painters International Gallery because there are some exciting things in the works there that I am delighted to be a part of.

So expect a few changes here as well.  I'll be posting my watercolors and my progress on larger pieces.  I'm hoping to get some videos up too. But it is unlikely that I will have a brand new small painting each day, especially now that plein air season is pretty much over for me.

I hope you'll keep visiting!
