I have to admit I like this time of year, the weather cools in the evenings and I'm forced to get a bit more organized as Camille starts the school year, it makes both of us feel we've acomplished something big. This is Camille's junior year and with pre-sats and homework packed classes we both know it will have it's difficult days, but I am excited for her and also a little clingy as I think that soon she will go to college and I will miss her desperately but I also know that If I did my job properly she will not miss me as much. And most of all It makes me think how incredibly lucky I am to have her for a daughter and my wonderful kind Nathaniel for a son.

I had a wonderful time teaching the Watercolor class "Rocks and Ruins", at Castle in the Air yesterday, and I couldn't have picked better company for a day of discovering the magic of watercolor. I was tired when I got home but couldn't resist a little more painting.

A long drive to L.A to pick up my daughter from "Innerspark", and back the same day. Now the house is full of hugs and laughter and music again. I missed her so much.
It's already time to brew up halloween projects for my up coming classes at Castle, this one is the bat wing crown inspired by Edward Goreys drawings.
