Just in case you think I've skipped town, I thought I'd share what's been on my paint table for the last two weeks. I've decided that I need to get back to painting some folk art scenes instead of cupcakes every week. It's been fun, but very slow going. The scene I'm working on is the Village Inn from Strasburg, PA. I'm painting it as an autumn scene with lots of brightly colored leaves and pumpkins. I visited Strasburg while teaching several years ago at Steph's Folk Art and fell in love with the area.
My hope and goal is to finish this painting this week.
I got a surprise in the mail this week from Paraclete Press.
What a sweet little book about Gratitude. It includes a Thanksgiving short story by Louisa May Alcott. The best part though is the folk art on the front cover is mine. I'm honored to have my artwork on this sweet little book that is available at Amazon.
Amazon also will let you have a look inside the book. So, stop by and take a peek. It is a quick read for a cool autumn day.
