This is a painting I did in the afternoon on a hot early September afternoon at Haue Valley Farm. It was a benefit for the Pacific Meramec Riverwalk Trail and it sold all five hundred tickets in advance. There were also raffles, food, and bluegrass bands, which will happen again next year. I escaped the crowd to paint this painting, but unfortuately the chiggers were escaping as well, right into all the tight areas of my clothing. This painting is available,
This is a painting I did at one of my favorite places to paint and I don't have to drive very far to see such a beautiful
place. It is the Shaw Nature Reserve in Gray Summit, Mo. This is a cup plant in the prairie. It is showing the signs of
fall with the browns, purples that show on the cup shape leaves.
