The weather turned from 90's to 70's for the upcoming weekend. My flowers are fading and I have replaced most of my potted plants with mums. I've continued working on the field of daisies and once again I find myself on hold trying to decide where to go next with the painting. When I find myself at that point I frequently move the painting to different locations around my house to help figure out what can be done to improve it. So far, it's been in the kitchen, the upstairs hall, the spare bedroom, and outside on the porch (for a quick snapshot). If any of you have suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
Onto the issue of cooler weather.....
Fall is not my favorite season, however I do anticipate the wondrous colors nature has to offer in the leaves, mums, pumpkins, and corn fields. It's a painters dream. The painting above is the beginnings of a piece I've referenced from a photo I took of my oldest son pulling a wagon of cornstalks at my Grandma's house in Lancaster, Ohio several years ago. A typical rustic fall scene in the country. I have a feeling a certain "anonymous" viewer will have a comment for this one, but I won't name names.
