The air is getting cooler here in Idaho. Already! The farmers are all getting ready to harvest and some have even started. Did you know that the schools here in Idaho are out of school for a week or so at the end of September for potato harvest?? A lot of the kids, of all ages, help with the harvesting. Chris has so many stories of “driving truck” and is still close with the farmers he worked for growing up. It’s a magical time of year around here. The sun is golden and warm and it cuts through the crisp air. It all just makes me want to buy candy corn and mix them with honey roasted peanuts. …and paint with metallic gold all day long.
This painting started out with a few coats of deep green, blues and pinks and then got softened with ivories and white and layered on 3 different golds. A lot of depth in this one. It is available for purchase here. Due to its metallic nature, there won’t be prints made.
Have a happy weekend!! We’ll be working on our sliding barn door–can’t wait to show you!
