Ah, the last day of August. Can’t say I’m sorry to see this harsh month go, although it was a little bit better than our brutal July. But I’ve got autumn on my mind and heart, and that’s where “Maple & Bittersweet” came from~
Every year when it comes time to paint fall scenes again its like meeting up with an old friend. The golds, the oranges, the reds. So pretty. Feeling in the mood for a little more traditional folk art style and motifs too— the little stylized trees and little farm houses. The girl in this painting was loosely inspired by a girl in a painting I did years ago— it was a fall painting I put in the gallery of my first Indie Emporium show. One of the pieces that won me a solo gallery exhibit in a local coffee shop. What a good year!
You might have noticed that this painting is now my new fall banner! I thought she fit perfectly 🙂 I will also get this made into prints with my next batch. Hoping to get a few more paintings created and then make a print order of lots of new goodies. Only a few weeks til Indie Emporium!~
Hope you’re having a good Wednesday,
