In October I was having fun with Inktober drawings. That’s a fun challenge,
and it kept me thinking about art. Last night we had our first snowfall. To
me seems a bit early. I think in my whole life I remember one snowfall that early
in Toronto. But the snow made the transition from October rather dramatic.

So now I want to move from Inktober into November, and try out some bright, 
colourful paintings in whatever way the mood hits me.

Today I started this small abstract landscape using a palette knife.
It was a lot of fun, and a complete contrast to line drawing.

If you live in Canada it’s time to find your warm clothes. And let’s enjoy the
transition. I went for a long, beautiful walk tonight with Steven. It was very
energizing being out in the freezing cold.

Happy November.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

It felt like breaking out of something. Of course now I really want
to get back to drawing, and I will. Hoping you are well and
safe. I love your work, and love your comments. You make my day
big time.
