Day 29: Pumpkin Harvest

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!Pumpkin Harvest

Blessings

There’s just something about Fall and the Harvest–the beautiful colors, the crisp air, a red maple leaf that gives me  a sense of peace and contentment.   It’s a privilege to live in this wonderful world.  I’m counting my blessings.

A Sunflower, and Crow and a Pumpkin

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.

Give Thanks

Day 22 

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!
