The Enchanted Pumpkin Patch

Good morning! Hope you all are having a good week. Thinking of those of you effected by Hurricane Isaac and hoping you and yours are safe. Here in Oklahoma, we expecting a bit of rain tomorrow from the storm as it whirls inland, although it looks like Arkansas will get the bulk of the rain. I know they've had a parched summer as well, so they will appreciate it. I'm looking forward to a rainy day for painting tomorrow. I'll have to run out for some supplies today and get ready to settle in.

    Speaking of painting---the clock is running out on time to make things for the September update, but I'm happy to report I am still getting a few things completed! Like this fun painting-- The Enchanted Pumpkin Patch! This piece is a little more on the whimsical side of things I've been painting lately, but I had fun dreaming it up. Imagine, an autumn field in the moonlight filled with silly enchanted pumpkins! 

    The closer we get to autumn the happier I get. I'm liking the new routine with school now in session--- I drop of Audrey and the dogs and I go for a little walk and then its time for errands, chores, or painting. I prefer painting, of course!

   Often times when I'm here in my little room painting, the dogs will join me and usually they end up passed out asleep. I snapped this photo of them the other night, I looked up and they were sleeping back-to-back, in identical positions! I thought it was so funny! I think Henry is finally condescending to have Franklin as a buddy.

Well, I hope you like this latest painting! It will be part of the group of new offerings listed on Saturday. I can't wait for you to see them all! I hope all of you find something that you love :) there will be several autumn pieces, and Christmas pieces as well. And more notecards! And a couple of new print designs! Oh my!~

   Til next time,
