Autumn Promenade

The fall foliage in the Washington DC area is stunningly beautiful. Last weekend, my family and I went to Rock Creek Park in Washington DC to view the yellows, oranges and reds of the fall colors and we were not disappointed. Today, the cold rain started falling and soon the colorful leaves will fall, too. The ephemeral quality of the colors of fall makes them that more special for we can only enjoy them while they last.

Back in the USA

A view from my new studio ....
Fall foliage in my new neighborhood......

I've been back to the US since the beginning of September but have been so busy settling back in... I just can't believe I've "neglected" my blog for so long! Not all is lost, though, for I have been painting and will start posting my new paintings again, soon. I've been greatly inspired by the beauty of the fall foliage in the Washington DC/ Northern Virginia area - the abundance of deciduous trees around the neighborhood results in a fantastic show of reds, orange and yellow colors in the fall - an awe inspiring sight. What a wonderful time to be back in the USA!
