We have been experiencing such gorgeous weather here for the past few days! It has really gotten me motivated to paint for the upcoming Fall and Halloween season. As most know, Fall is my favorite time of year, not only for the crisp and cool mornings but for the splendor of the color palette.
Brown, rust, gold and black are some of my all time favorite colors, so it is pure joy to paint these wonderful projects.
This tray was a special order request by a customer and using a Terrye French design it was just what she was looking for.......:)
This isn't fall but the design was perfect for a primitive mail holder for that primitive decorated office.
Nothing says prim then the elements used here in a design by Marie Provost. Thanks Marie for always designing such cute patterns! 
I love to paint on just about any surface but canvas has to be my all time favorite. Primitive or Folk art inspired canvas paintings can be quite pricey as I found out searching for primitive art for my own home. I have paintings on wood, signs, and flea market collectibles etc, but there is just something special about a framed piece of art. I love to see them in groupings on walls or even displayed on an end table or cabinet.This is a new design by Terrye French and as always Terrye never disappoints with her designs......thanks Terrye!
I just had to paint a new mousepad for the season too......this was based on a design by Renee Mullins. My computer is in my studio, so I always paint a new one for how this one turned out
This one was just too fun for words! Nothing says prim more then a make-do and Terrye has outdone herself with this fabulous design. Pumpkins, bats, cats, lots of fun Halloween in this piece.
I have a few more items that I would like to complete for the fall and Halloween season and then it will be on to will be here before we know it.
I hope you take a moment to enjoy these last days of summer.......I know many are busy getting their children back to school and it is such a busy time........but take a moment and enjoy.......till next time......
God Bless
