It seems like a long time since I have actually posted a painting instead of a photo!
My son has a crabapple tree in his back yard which produces incredible numbers of tiny but jewel-toned crabapples. They were more than happy to share a huge plastic container with me, which I juiced so as to make crabapple jelly later when I am able. I did save enough to fill up this bucket and take some photos for painting.
Today my husband is down at the garden digging potatoes. I think I may end up doing something with a few of those knarley ones that are so interesting in shape and color... Our weather is turning cooler, although we have enjoyed record setting temperatures the last week (in the upper 20's C.). It is time to finish up the garden, and bring up wood for the fireplace. Fall is here, and that means winter is not far behind. Next weekend is Thanksgiving in Canada, and so all the fall produce like pumpkins, squash, potatoes, turnip and so on will be at the Farmers' Markets this week. It is a wonderful time of year to enjoy color and the splendor of fresh produce!
Have a great week, everyone.
