Thinking Ahead...

Well.. Bloggers... I have to think ahead and do some winter-Christmasy things... seems like I skipped Fall... and did not paint a pumpkin... or leaves... Life seems to go by so fast..
I wish I could paint everyday...but that is not the case... So I am getting some Winter things ready for a show in Nov....
Hope you are enjoying the warm colors of Fall... it will soon be
all the cool colors of winter...
Notice.. I have not finished the bird... tomorrow night..:)... stayed tuned...

Autumn Glory

Traditions of Autumn.. getting your own pumpkin... one that is just your size and shape...
I took my kids...and now I go with my grand kids... the wonder is the same... pumpkins in October... what else is there?... and the trees turn orange also..


they will all be chosen...and carried away as treasure...



Don't you love the change of seasons... each one has it's own glory...

Velveteen Rabbit and friend

I have been thinking of my childhood lately.. I had a wonderful childhood...and had wonderful parents. I know many of you out there may not have and I am truly sorry.... yet.. now is not too late to enjoy childlike things.... like swishing through dried leaves in the fall...
Tracing your name on a wet window pane.... collecting acorns... licking your fingers after a good chocolate bar... Being childlike is a good thing.. especially when it comes to Trusting God... We are his children.. and He is our Father.. worthy of all our trust... The Bible says... we must be like children to enter the Kingdom of Heaven...
I painted
these two paintings...and suddenly I thought of the Velveteen Rabbit...and Nutkin.. two stories I loved as a child... How about you ?.... did you have favorites also?....
Each of us has a child inside...
and that child is dearly loved by your Father in Heaven... :)

Apples #2

Another quick one... I think it is a good exercise to do small quick studies... I find it relaxing after a very hectic day.. just to sit down and splash on some color...
So this will be my routine for a while... tomorrow we go to the apple orchard...
Maybe I will bring home some still life.
have a great day... do something creative..
