Back to the drawing board

I woke this morning to the sound of a gentle rain.  It was a straight down affair.  No wind-blown rain drops or crashing thunder; just a soft rustling as the raindrops fell through the dry fall leaves.  I think I could stand a week of this. I love the rain and have sorely missed it this summer.

Fall gourds

I have been awaiting the appearance of the fall gourds and when I went to the grocery store yesterday, I found a nice assortment all in one bag. They are not very large, but I liked the variety.  I still feel like painting something and I thought that the interesting shapes and colors of the gourds would combine into a lovely still life.  They are really quite textural.  And I have picked out a few new entryways and a street scene as possibilities to draw.  I’m leaning towards the street scene as a change of pace.  We’ll see what moves me when I actually sit down at the drafting table.  Pastel vs watercolor?  Decisions, decisions.
