Pumpkin Patch 14" x 18"

For sale at the farm that day were: apples, artichokes, gourds, squash, potatoes, honey, homemade cookies and pumpkins. Lots of pumpkins. We bought three – two for carving and one for pie. It was the first time that I made pumpkin pie from a whole pumpkin (not a can), and now I can never go back.

P.S. After my last snowy painting, I had promised to paint something more summery. But it seems as though I’ve gone straight from winter to autumn, skipping summer altogether—just like the weather in Vancouver! (Sorry, complaining about the weather has become a regular pastime around here).

The Long Winter 6" x 6"

Some of you may not want to look at this painting. We have been waiting a long time for summer to arrive, so you likely don’t want to be reminded of the piles of snow that melted just a couple of months ago.  I think (hope ?) that summer is finally here,  so I’m not sure what compelled me to paint this cold grey scene. I think that what really interested me was the criss-cross of power lines dividing up the sky. And on this little canvas (6″ x 6″), it was a lot of fun to do.

I’ll do something warmer next time, I promise.
