Salt and PeppA

"Salt and Pepper"
7" x 8" acrylic on canvas
available in my Etsy Shop here

This is a new still life that I finally completed last Friday. I had actually started it before we moved...but then it sat on my drawing board for quite some time looking very sad and lonely. I decided last week that it was time to give it some attention so I hunkered down with my paint brushes and finished it. Yay!


Here's a last shot of some beautiful Fall leaves blanketing our backyard. The next day we had a pretty big wind storm so most of the leaves are gone now. I miss them already and the beauty they graced us with the past few weeks. Maisie will miss them too; romping through them and having me throw big handfuls over her. She loved that...it made her do a happy dance.

Back tomorrow with another new Christmas card!
