Today's weather is just as bad (if not worse!) than yesterday. Rain, rain, rain. I set my alarm, woke up to hear the rain pounding on the skylights, and went back to sleep for a bit longer. There was no sunrise to speak of anyway.

I used my time today work on the laptop a bit and do some catch-up on paperwork. For a brief period, I even pulled out my fiddle and played a few tunes (until I realized there were still folks working in the downstairs Art Association office...sorry!!!).

Sometime after lunch, I figured it might be a good day to wander around the local art galleries. You just can't imagine how many nice galleries there are in such a small little town! High quality art from very well-known local, statewide and even out-of-state artists. Most of the artwork seemed to have been inspired by the beauty of the Leelanau area.

Here's just a sampling of some of the galleries I wandered around in all in one afternoon (and this was just in Glen Arbor):

Center Gallery
Forest Gallery
Lake Street Studios
Ruth Conklin Gallery

Here's one photo of what it looked like out there today on the lake (big waves, gray sky, not much light).

Of course, I had someone tell me I should get out there and capture the moodiness of the somber gray weather. However, when I was all fired up to see beautiful fall colors and crisp autumn skies, I just couldn't get inspired. Most of my photography tends to concentrate on the beautiful colors found in nature, and when there isn't much color, I find myself struggling to find subject matter.

Better luck tomorrow?

Dinner tonight was takeout Thai Peanut Noodles from MayBings Takeout Market. After my terrific yet calorie-laden meal at Art's yesterday (I found myself craving another juicy burger from there!), I steered clear and had pasta and veggies instead. Besides - there is still some cherry pie left...
