Not Quite Ready for Fall Colors

I know Fall is upon us and I should be concentrating on Fall colors, but I’m just not a Fall colors kinda girl. Here’s another of my recently finished pieces. I find that I’m always drawn to blues, greens, purples and pinks. Pretty girly, huh? I kicked off my Fall show season at the Riverside Arts Market last Saturday and traffic was definitely slow….probably a combination of the holiday weekend and the kickoff of college football season! I think I planned poorly on that one. Though Jacksonville does have an NFL team (and don’t even get me started on what’s happening here with the Jags), we are much more of a college football town, and much to my chagrin, a Florida Gator town (yes, I’m a Florida State Seminole). Speaking of which, my ‘Noles kicked of Monday night against Miami and I broke down and went over there for the game….on a school night, no less! The guys played their hearts out (on the offensive side at least; we won’t discuss defense or special teams), but we lost in a knuckle biter with 20 seconds left. Made for a VERY long day Tuesday between driving back home, working all day, and then teaching Tuesday night.

I’m still adjusting to my Fall schedule. When I scheduled my RAM dates (on top of three large juried festival weekends), I had apparently misplaced a few brain cells and forgotten how busy Fall always is for me, between Fall term at the college, the girls going back to school, and juggling Florida State and Alabama (for DH) football. Add the two Tuesday night classes, and I think I’ll be perpetually tired until mid-December. Bring on the Diet Coke! What’s your Fall look like?

i'm with you about the fall colors! it's hard for us here in florida to start thinking about hay rides and hot cocoa when it's still 90 degrees outside! :)

Wow Kelly - absolutely gorgeous.
AND... turquoise goes so beautifully with brown that you could easily wear this into the fall.
