Autumn Finally Arrives

Autumn has finally arrived here firmly in Maine.  We had temps near freezing for a few nights, a wild rain storm which knocked out power, sadly for many, for almost a week.  We were spared I think because we live near our local fire station with it’s marvelous WWII vintage siren to call the volunteers in, but our power seems to stay on when others down the road are out.  The leaves are down and the trees are wearing their pre-winter skeletons.  Winds are beginning to whip down the river from New Hampshire and that’s a sure sign of colder things to come.  Hats and mittens have been sorted and we are ready.

Even though my 52 projects ended early, I am still in creative mojo mode and am doing a craft fair the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so I busy at work in the studio to fill both my etsy and get ready for this one day fair.

New from the studio…

A Mischievous Angel

Translating the Science (for you Elizabeth)

Some shining stars… A Fairy, a cricket, a bird and some flowers celebrate the full moonAs you can see I’ve been busy since last week.  Hope you all have a marvelous weekend, and for those friends still without power, hope it comes back today.

    Wow Corrine, you really HAVE been busy. I love each of these, and yes, Translating the Science is wonderful. I sure need it on occasion, especially when it comes to chemistry, something I know very little about. But the STARS spoke to me, too.

    I really like how you described how autumn had now arrived. Sadly, or happily if you will, we have not experienced that yet. Even the leaves on many of our trees are still green. I’m so glad to hear you are safe and have power. That is SO frustrating, so this is great news.

    What fun things you are creating! I can tell you are in the groove. I think autumn is about over here and we are moving into winter rain. That means more time in the studio for me!

    I, too, am cold in Colorado Springs, my friend, and we are here for another two weeks! But, the humor in your art has warmed me today! I hope and the Super Hero and your pack are all doing well!

    You are a busy bee. Your latest creations are adorable. Have fun at the craft fair. I’m bet your paintings will sell like hotcakes!
    Autumn is coming on here in Germany, but the leaves are changing their colors very slowly – maybe because we´ve had a lot of rain this summer… and still have! Right now it’s all gray and rainy 🙁

    You’ve been busy indeed, Corrine. Your creations make me smile. They’re so adorable!
    Power outages that last for days are really annoying. I’m glad you didn’t have any.
    Stay warm!

    Your last painting is so imaginative. I love the cricket waving and that’s an interesting fairy.

    And the weather , well, we have been out here in Wa since the 1st so I have no idea what it is like home pretty much rain here for their winter weather “( although we did wake up to a dusting of snow one morning!
    Lucky that you live close to the FD for many reasons, but especially being fortunate to not loose the power!
