It’s a cold rainy night in the Outaouais. I didn’t take a picture yet today, nor my one second video, so headed outside to take a video of the rain. It’s pretty dark out and I thought I was out of luck for photo of the day when I turned and saw our pretty orange flower.

Amazes me every day that it’s still blooming in this cool weather.

I painted another fall scene. It was a great way to spend an afternoon break from work.

Now, last night’s Celine Dion concert was great! My first time seeing her live. Considering she was still feeling unwell, she was amazing!

What a busy week this is turning out to be. Last night was the Chieftains concert at the NAC, tonight is Celine Dion… yes! My first Celine Dion concert!!! And another concert coming up Thursday night.

I looked at tickets for Celine earlier this year when I heard she was coming to town. But the prices were over $200 so I decided to pass. A few days ago, Mom mentions she’d like to see Celine and checks for tickets. $77!!! Crazy!

So getting the blog posted before heading out.

Today picture is during sunrise. Love how the geese take off from the river every morning, then fly over the house and settle in the field across from me for the day.

And today’s painting is inspired by the beautiful flower that burst open last week and is still going strong despite several nights of frost.

Happy Thanksgiving!

A cool rainy day today in the Outaouais. But oh, those colours! Was thinking of heading to Gatineau Park to enjoy the colours but then heard of the crowds and the park closing to traffic so opted to just enjoy the view from my home instead. Like this one from this afternoon:

Today’s painting is actually a full moon rising, or perhaps setting?
