What a beautiful day! The weather is going to be in the 70s, a precious occurance this time of year in Indiana, I'm playing with the new pigments I got from Sinopia a week or two ago, and there's a general sense of optimism in the air for some reason. And I get to go see Poets Laureate Billy Collins and Kay Ryan at IU this evening!

We were driving home from Memphis the other day, going through Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, and the afternoon light was just right on the trees turning for autumn. I think something has changed in me because for the first time I thought about the tree's colors like this: "Red earth, green earth, some ochre and burnt umber. Mars orange. Iron oxide."
