Number 3 of my 100 painting project. We visited Valle Crucis park one day last fall, did a little sketching and I took several photos. The autumn colors were softened by the slightly overcast sky that was also reflected in the surface of the pond. It was a wonderfully peaceful outing.

I have been thinking about connections. Connections of ideas, people, events. Nothing is really an isolated event. What happens in one place happens everywhere, to all of us, in one form or another, if we are really paying attention. I am moved to send what I can to help the relief efforts in Haiti. My little bit of help can connect with yours and many others who offer just a little bit to make a big difference that helps us all in the end.

All things by immortal power,
Near or far,
To each other linked are,
That thou canst not stir a flower
Without troubling a star.

-Francis Thompson

OOOOO Pretty...I've been painting too, but mine doesn't look as good as this. Painting was relaxing and hopeful for me...But now? I'm ready to throw the canvas, paint, and brushes into the woods!

Well Done Ann! I can't wait to see more:)

You are doing well on your 100 goal! I'm enjoying seeing your journey. Sending money to a Haitian minister we met through the Bible college where Ken works.
