Autumn by the Lake

Day 30 Yay!!    Now I can take a rest.  I feel like I’ve really grown as an artist.  I like the work I did this challenge better than what I started with the last challenge in January.  Leslie will have to do this again so I can keep improving!  I almost doubled the number of people following my blog for which I am grateful.  In means so much to me to have someone look at my creative efforts.  I hope you will keep checking out what I’m doing in the days and weeks ahead.

I am especially grateful for all of you that sent such nice, supportive comments on my paintings.  It has really given me the confidence to keep trying.  I thank you for that.  I will keep painting and I will keep quilting.  And I will try to believe that the best is yet to come!

Here is my last painting for awhile.  It is larger than the rest and I really tried to push myself to do my best work for the 30th painting.  I love color, pumpkins, houses, funky birds and quilting.  I tried to get them all in this last one.

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.
