Happy fall! I've been meaning to get this blog post out to you, but life has been full of car troubles, kids, work projects and home repairs! A month can sometimes feel like a year, but then we look back and it's flown by all at the same time!
I hope you'll take a minute to enjoy a new painting that I'm happily finished with. This one has been swirling in my head for years! Our First Church of Oviedo has faithfully hosted one of my favorite pumpkin patches for as long as I can remember and it's a favorite of mine. Even on the few years I haven't purchased from them, it's been so fun to drive by and see. Once those string lights start going up, it feels like it's officially fall. I love to see it when I'm dropping off or picking up at the nearby high school, especially after a football game!
Since this scene feels so iconic for Oviedo, I've decided to include it in the Oviedo art card pack. It is nestled among some of my favorite pieces such as; The Farmer's Market, Tutus on Broadway, The Old Townhouse, The Lawton House at Christmas Time and of course, Pappy's Patch just to name a few.
While over the years, this pack of cards has evolved and some pieces have been taken out (bye-bye old fire station : ) I'm happy to say that this year it boasts 12 paintings of Oviedo scenes!
I have other scenes that I've painted around town over the years such as Oviedo On The Park, roosters and the old downtown, but these 12 just rise to the top for me.
,If you'd like to pick up the 12 pack with envelopes for a gift, or a matted 8x10" print of the Perpetual Patch painting they are happily being sold at Riley Reigh Mod Market. If you haven't stopped in there, you simply must... the shop is bursting with holiday gift giving goodies!
Whether I am painting custom artwork, creating a water colored logo for a client, or teaching art students, I hope to refresh and inspire others with my work. Read more ...
