LATE SUMMER PAINTINGS

I have been busy working on a trio of late summer/early fall paintings. They have lots of crackle and brown antiquing giving them a very primitive look! They look so neat in these rustic golden frames, it will be hard to part with them. (Sorry, the frames aren't included--I like to rotate my artwork in these with the seasons)

The first painting is a girl harvesting grapes, despite the blackbirds. The second one is a girl enjoying an apple in a big old tree. Her kitty is more concerned with the butterfly on his butt! The third one illustrates exactly why I don't grow sunflowers anymore--I never get to see the heads mature!

I will be listing these on eBay tonight. Have a good week!

love the paintings and the frames...they look great together!
Also...thank you SO much Cris for your advice regarding my teenager...I have to learn to ignore and not let my Italian temper get the best of me! I agree 100% on what you said about how respectful they seem to be to EERYONE but their parents!! I truly enjoy everything about her...she is a blessing in my life just gotta learn how to better ignore the eyes a rollin!!
