End of the Plein Air Season

Its getting colder, so it was particularly nice to have a warm fall Monday for one of the last “Monday Painters” sessions at Spohr Gardens in Falmouth.  The fall colors across Oyster Pond added interest to a painting looking across the pond from the gardens.  With a turn to chilly weather this week, this may have been my last outing with the group for this season.  Other fall outings to Surf Drive and Chappaquoit Beach were also sites for other recent fall Monday trips.  It’s been a good painting year.

I can tell it’s fall, since I’ve picked up some of my crafts projects again.  I had a big stash of nylon netting waiting to be turned into “Scrubbies”.  Football games and World Series games are perfect opportunities to return to needlework!  We had run out of Scrubbies from my last big batch, so it was good to replenish my supply.  Nothing I buy works as well on cleaning pots, and they are gentle on no stick surfaces.  Also great for car windshields and other surfaces.
