Autumn Inspirations

I followed my beloved duck hunter
to the duck slough this weekend...
There was a cold wind 
blowing up my tailfeathers,
but I finally managed 
to get some pictures of him and our Max
in the field!

There's been a lot of 
heavy duty wind lately,
taking it's toll on the 
beautiful fall foliage.

I've been trying to catch the 
brilliant colors before
they all blow away,
but there just never seems
to be enough time....

 Our latest job site is a brand new log home
just over the hill a few miles from our house....

We are both spinning with creative
ideas and artistic techniques...
all inspired from the fall colors
of the South Dakota prairie...

I've been working on sample boards
to show the homeowners before I 
put any paint on the walls.

So far so good...

as soon as the sawdust is cleaned up,
I'm going in with paint, brushes, rollers,
and some good tunes...

Sall's hand textured walls
and my faux finish...

I can't wait...
this is going to be fun...

To be able to create
get paid for it?

It doesn't get much better than that!!!!

I'll be keeping you posted
on the progress,
Happy Wednesday!
