daily paint, October 31, 2007

Good morning!

and a crisp, sunny, lovely colored one it is! It's one of those days that almost makes me wish I painted landscapes:)

I brought a small bit of landscape in recently. There was a mum sitting in my backyard that was having lateness issues, wherein I knew it would not make it to completion. Yes, I am well aware that mums are some of the toughest little buggers out there, but I also remember driving in ugly snow exactly one year ago Friday, so there! I plopped the aforementioned mum into a pot and it came into the kitchen, where it proceeded to bloom with so much effort that I decided to paint it. So, 'Summer Leftovers", 40 x 20 inches, acrylic painting on canvas.

Have a lovely day! Cooper

I always wish for mums this time of year.
And tulips in the spring and roses in the summer.
But of course you can't plan mums in the fall...or I would. No, I'm supposed to be planting tulips right now. How boring.
So I just enjoy other people's flowers.
The creeping phlox you planted are spreading every year. We love them.
I wish they'd take over the whole lawn so I didn't have to MOW.
