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,
Signs of Fall
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.
