Fall Is Here

I can't believe fall is here already. Is it me or did we have a really nice and fast or short summer? And, is it me or did we jump right into winter? Hasn't it been cold!

One of my best friends took some pictures of the fall leaves up in the mountains of N.C. where she lives and they are so colorful and beautiful. I am posting one or two that I'm using for reference on my next painting.

The colors of fall always put me in awe of what awesome miracles God does in our lives and somehow it is hard to describe my feeling of thanks so I wind up just giving a simple thank you Lord and know he understands.
I have the background of my painting done, now I am painting in the trees that are close-up and the detail. It has taken me about 3 weeks so far to get this one close to done.... life gets in the way sometimes. :)
I am hoping to have this one done soon and get it posted here.

Indian Scene

My granddaughter and her fiancé just got back from Cherokee and Maggie Valley on an Authenic Indian souvenir buying spree to decorate their game room. While they were gone I painted them an indian scene for them as their Christmas gift. I hope they like it. It was Jerry Yarnell inspired.
