Trying to create those Autumn memories for the grandchildren and family. Choosing a pumpkin to carve is always so much fun; these photos were taken a couple of days before Halloween. It is a challenge to get Kai to stand still long enough to get a good photo of him. He is always running or climbing to his next destination! Dylan and Zoe are growing up way too fast. Eeeek! All of the grandchildren are!!!
I think this watercolor painting will be the last Autumn art for this season (this is a cropped version of the original). It was inspired by our local park, that Sophie has affectionately named: The Duck Park. I have been busy working on a lot of Christmas art as well; several projects at once (been totally loving it, being so absorbed into the art that I lose track of time). Trying to get those done (and dried), so I can share images with you here, and to list some of them in my Etsy shop. I also have been occupied with the grandchildren and family, which is always a good thing! :)
I hope you are all enjoying the beauty of the Fall Season. I have been enjoying seeing the leaves change colors (finally), and loving the cooler weather. I did take a few Christmas decorations out of one of our boxes, mainly for a photo session with some of the Christmas artwork I am creating. I am trying to hold off on the rest of the Christmas décor until after Thanksgiving. Every year it is a little hard for me to hold back on it. Are any of you in the same boat with me?
Our oldest daughter Candice has her (artificial) tree up already and many of her Christmas decorations out. She has always been the Christmas girl at heart. Listening to a Frosty the Snowman album on her red record player as a little girl. Such fond memories of her singing those tunes and putting up her own decorations in her bedroom (just like the little girl on the movie Prancer... :)).
Happy day to you!
Thanks for visiting.
