... and fall approaches, the itch to draw, paint and create grows! I have taken the summer to gather reference materials and am ready to begin planning my commission work for the winter. In Wyoming, the tips of the apple trees outside my front door are changing to red and I can no longer ignore them. Days are already getting notably shorter. Torture it is to know that warm days will be getting cooler and my horses' coats will be growing fuzzier... but with the cold brings livelier times in my studio... the part I do not dread in the least!
