Barn Quilts

I’ve read in magazines only about areas of the U.S. where there quilts painted on barns.  If I was free to roam, how fun it would be to take a drive in the country and go from farm to farm to see this outdoor quilt “show”.  Sounds like the Quilt Life to me.


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.


Do Pumpkins Grow on Trees?

Day 19

Pumpkins, acorns and sunflowers—what an unusual tree!  The blackbird likes it.  Puts him in that Autumn mood.

I promise I will paint something without a pumpkin  before this challenge is over.  For now, I’m still loving those pumpkins!Image

I was playing around in It’s a free photo editing website I discovered through my Webinarts online class with Leslie Saeta. I love how this “sunshine” poster turned out. I used a pic of one of my original art quilts, adding text and a frame.
