All of these beautiful colors that fall is swirling around us has got me thinking, I haven't painted in long time. Even before I met Jade, painting was something I would do every now an then to release some of my pent up aggression or just to relax and see where the color took me. It seems Jade is feeling a little creatively sparked lately...
