A few weeks ago, I set up across the street from Strawberry Hollow Farm and painted a study for this picture. Autumn was in full bloom, and the pumpkins and mums were lined up outside of the cute little shop. From the study, I painted a 10"x20" painting, which really captured the panoramic view and the autumn warmth. I sold the study and the larger painting to the owner of the farm yesterday. I could tell that he really liked it. It was a lot of fun to paint, and a terrific subject. The farmer has a lovely piece of property with a nice pond. He says in the Spring, the flowers are beautiful around the pond. I asked permission to come back to paint the pond area, and he said that I can come back any time, so I'm looking forward to painting there this Spring.
My artwork is now on exhibit at the Woodbridge Town Library. It will stay up until November 30th. My show is this Saturday from noon until 3:00 PM. The public is invited. I hope that lots of people can come by and see the work in person. The paintings look so much better than my photographs.
I have a lot of new landscape paintings, a few seascapes, and some nice street scenes.
