I get a lot of inspiration from quilting–even quilting fabric. This picture was inspired by a piece of printed fabric I bought over 10 years ago. I still intend to use it in a quilt–someday. I think there are a lot of great artists out there designing fabric. In my dreams, I would be one of them!
Day 24. Can’t believe this challenge is almost over. The big question is: Will I keep on painting? I thought I would move on from the Fall theme, but I must admit I am a sucker for anything Fall-ish. This little painting is of some table decor I bought last year. They are so cute I couldn’t resist painting them. They stand about 6 inches tall and live on my piano at the moment. When I got out my Fall decorations box a few days ago, I was pleasantly surprised to find them. It’s often like that. I buy something, but after putting it away for a year, I forget all about it. So it was fun to experience the “new” find when I opened the box. I wonder what “new” Christmas stuff I will find in a couple of months.
It’s Autumn. With all the beautiful colors starting to appear and the pumpkins on my porch, my thoughts turn to our beautiful world. And how thankful I feel to live in it. This song/hymn has been running through my mind:
For thy bounteous blessings
For thy wonderous work,
For thy loving kindness,
We give thanks, O Lord.
Enjoy the beautiful colors of harvest time!
