  1. November is the easiest month of my blogging. My mom’s birthday, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, great American Smokeout

    1. Moved here in Los Angeles to do my grad work in psychology. Was not impressed with the first year at the Free university in Amsterdam, that was in the mid eighties. It was hard, because I had 3 children, so not much time to socialize with friends with whom I studied, and of course the language was an issue, and finances, for I chose a private university (it means tuition cost a lot more), but still glad I followed my dream. My youngest brother studied medicine, so I thought, I can get a degree too:)

  2. Gorgeous leaf, and I love how some dark days highlight trees and flowers. I’m glad you included that link to your other page, how creative and interesting the painting and the stairs are to help you with the big ones. I love how you captured movement in the billowing dress. What are you painting in the background of the dance floor? Very cool depth.

  3. Great photos, but they didn’t look very dark to me. Of course, I live in the Pacific Northwest, so maybe that explains it. I enjoyed your beautiful scenes, especially the one that showed you at work on a painting.

  4. Hello, the leaves are beautiful. I love your sky and tree capture. I am not a fan of winter, looking forward to Spring already. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great week ahead.

    1. You would like it, It’s about children who before and after birth died or were killed. For several sources I heard they have a children’s department in heaven, and I once saw the part of people and angels dressing them to go to school.The other part was seen by someone who visited my workshop (now 16 years ago) and asked me if I painted visions of others. At that time I had no grid for it. God worked on my maturity:):)

    2. 9 x 7 feet, have painted another one that size, and a 10 x 17 feet one. They’re the paintings that that made us move to the country side (to have more space, we could afford). The best present hubs could give me was to make the movable stair case!

  6. Your studio looks so lovely nestled in the trees, Jesh. I can see that you’re left handed, like me. Two of my children are and one grandchild so far. My mother is, too, as was her mother. Definitely hereditary. I love the vibrancy of that leaf, autumn is my favourite time of year for colour.

    1. Thank you Jean! Moving here to the country side and painting these huge ones, was definitely a big change in our lives. Have not regretted it. Some life changes makes one mature exponentially. This was one. My priorities have – and needed to – change a lot.

    2. Forgot to respond to left-handedness. They say that the left handers tend to be creative. They also tend to have a shorter life, because of right handers bumping into them, etc. Good that hubby is left handed as well, so we both can grow old:)

    1. Dan you make me laugh – the broccoli is the reflection of the puddle in which you see the “tree in the back, ground” and the “banner” is a 30 x 40 slab of concrete that became the floor of my studio (barn). Look at it again, then you will see it:):)

    2. Ooooh – that’s my header- there was one little moment I thought you meant that, but immediately rejected it because I had that there already for some time:):( Thanks for solving my conundrum, and black broccoli it is (by the way, am making broccoli soup for dinner today, in honor of you…. lol!)

  7. I love the action shot of you painting! You’re a leftie – as are both my sons 🙂. From the look of how you are dressed, it appears that your studio can get a bit chilly.

    1. I have perfect (haha) planning, one of the big ones, I was painting at over a 100 degr F, without air conditioning, and this one when it was near zero, but hey I won’t let weather stop me.
