Apples across the brilliant lawn

Today in heavy rain somehow the grass around our school house was glistening
in the soft light, water shining off the green.  And across the would be field,
(now nicely cut) dotted here and there with wild purple flowers, there are some
apple trees along the edge of the property.  They are looking especially lovely
now.  My friends Flora Doehler and Larry Knox in Bear River have 
some of the most beautiful apple trees I've ever seen, and are picking 
their apples, and making applesauce.

I know I won't have time to harvest our apples -- most are just on
the verge of ripening.  But I did a quick sketch of some small
apples tonight.  It was a lot of fun just fooling around with line.

Have a loving what you see day.

Thank you so much,

It was so great to see you and to see your art. I feel like around you
creativity thrives, and I can still see your gorgeous art singing in my
heart and mind. Ideas are popping up for new art, and I hope I anchor myself
to get working at them when I get home.
