Today was a beautiful day! My family went to Deutsch Country Days in a small town an hour outside of St. Louis. It is a working German farm where they demonstrate tons of early American crafts, woodworking, cooking, guns, etc. There were some beautiful things to see, as well as yummy German food. I ate way too much. Besides an authentic German lunch, we had fresh sugared kettle corn, chocolate dipped molasses puffs, anise springerles, and homemade root beer!
I love the golden glow of this time of year, the way the sun hits the fall foliage--casting a golden hue to everything. This painting, Fox in the Golden Woods, was inspired by how I see things during my favorite season. It will be on Ebay sometime this week. The link is at the top of my page.
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
