I love this one. It’s so simple, and peaceful, too, the bright contrast of fall foliage catching low afternoon sun on the banks of the Shenandoah River.
There’s just something about autumn…the crisp air, the coziness (I’ve been nesting like crazy…painting walls and prepping the garden for winter and cooking chowders and dipping WAY TOO MANY apples in caramel lately). Or is it the early darkness? The holidays around the corner? Maybe it’s my students’ over-the-top excitement about Halloween. The “Scary Monster” oil pastel drawings my special ed 2nd graders did last week are AMAZING. Even better, they didn’t want to stop and go to lunch. Seriously! Whatever it is about fall, it’s got me hooked. Them, too.

One more Shenandoah painting in the queue, then more collage birds. Turns out you love ’em as much as I do…they’re nearly all sold! I’ve got photos of summer tanagers and vermilion flycatchers and adorable little Canadian robins all over the place. Yep, we’re going RED, people. Stay tuned…
