stretching summer

I've always labored on Labor Day.

If you had a corporate job that paid double time on federal holidays, who wouldn't work if they had the chance.

As luck and the calendar would have it, this year, as of midnight tonight, I'm off the day job until Thursday!

Summer is hanging on by a thread, weatherwise. There are plenty of things hanging around the studio needed color and the mailman just came through with the order I placed with ProChem.

There will be color, but the mood is hushed. melancholy. We'll see what tomorrow brings.


  1. hmmmm Deb, waiting for new colours .... exciting !

  2. love seeing more of your magic way with colour!

  3. Labor Day used to mark the turning of season from summer to fall, back in the days when I was growing up in New York. Melancholy exactly the right word for letting go of days on the beach, putting shoes back on bare feet, and gathering supplies for the first day of school.

    Now, in Texas, September is the "cruelest month" ... where triple-digit heat will persist while others speak of cool nights farther north. So yes, melancholy.

    May your colors be true.


Tell me everything!

a grand accomplishment

                                This is what I want to do next. I just love what Hazel has done with her treasured cloth, her love and time...

Play it again Sam.
