challenge twelve

A couple of weeks ago, I would've told you I'm nowhere near ready for fall. I love my shorts, flip flops and just the overall casual way that is summer. And then the leaves started to change. I seem to forget how vibrant fall is almost every year; I forget the smells that come from ciders, festivals, and the crispness that is the unmistakeable welcome mat to winter.

In other words, I'm diggin' it.

Also, I wanted to share this little encounter I had with a painting at our local museum. Last Sunday, I visited for what had to be the first time in at least two years, and when I go, I instantly promise myself I won't stay away so long again. But then life goes on and weeks become months and so on. Anyway; as I was viewing the same paintings I've viewed a gazillion times, I happened upon this gem:

It's called, A Family Experience, by Philip Jackson, and you can read all about him here:

The reason I'm sharing this painting with all of you is because if you look closely, you may recognize some familiar subjects:

Isn't that crazy? I have to say I feel quite inadequate about the photo I arranged for the challenge where these guys were included! But I still think it's kind of cool!

Enjoy your week and challenge twelve is due Monday, October 11.
