Instead of painting the last few days, I have been working on these collages for my 6 year old twin granddaughters, Sophie and Elizabeth (aka Little Miss Sunshine and Sweet Pea). I got them finished just in time to take with us to Dallas where we will spend Christmas with the little cuties. Actually I fear they would rather have a stuffed animal, but these are something I have wanted to do for a while. Jack is after me to get packed up and on the road at this moment but I wanted to post them before we left. Merry Christmas.

Sampler of Fall Colors

I pass this scene every day on my way into Fredericksburg from our place. The trees on the left change with the seasons. They are bare now, but go through so many colors from spring to fall. I like to paint them often. I wish I could take my portable easel out to try then en plein air, but I would have to either stand on the road or in some tall grasses. And who knows what might be in the tall grasses!
