One great thing about anticipating the busy fall and winter seasons of shows and holiday sales is that I get to totally shut out summer and pretend it’s fall! And one of my first fall paintings is this one– A Thankful Harvest (original piece already sold.)
You may remember these characters from my painting Picking Dinner. It’s the same little family– this time the baby is big enough to start standing on her own, perhaps she’ll take her first steps by winter? Anyhow– this painting shows the bountiful harvest of the garden come autumn, with corn, squash, pumpkins and even a basket of apples!
I also love little black speckled chickens, and so I thought I’d give them a couple. Plus, a pumpkin headed scare crow– Audrey really liked that part!
As for this afternoon— Audrey and Daddy have gone out fishing, so it’s just me and critters. I have another autumn (this time very Halloween!) painting on my painting desk, and I also finished a logo for an ancestry services business! Can’t wait to show you!
Wishing you a merry weekend–
