A blanket of brouillard (a french word that took me some time to master pronouncing) rolled in yesterday.  It had the effect of turning down the volume on everything.  The harvest is in, the fields are turned with horizontal stripes that seem to elongate the wideness of the landscape.  Just earth and sky.  Elemental and stripped back.

Elsewhere today I had a helper,

and as the house began to quieten with the quickening darkness I began the Sketchbook Project 2012.


  1. ah, your brouillard comment reminds me of the treasury i made today.......sea, earth, sky.

    hmm, will have to look up pronunciation and see if i can pull it off- LOL!

    love the pic of your helper and his little toes.
