Can you tell that all the animals are wondering if these two creatures will become a couple? They are also in a delicate tapestry of foliage with a gold background. You can tell it is gold paint by the way it reflects in the painting below.

I framed this in a cherry frame.

This weekend brought fun things. Friday I was out picking grapes with 2 fabulous artist friends, Teresa Mowery of Patina Studio-lovely copper work and Loren Quinn– fabulous custom mosaic and glass tiles.  You can check out their work via their links to their names. Teresa knew the owner, and the owner needed help with picking their 2 acres of vineyards. There were about 25 of us picking. We were served a fabulous lunch and all went home with a bottle of wine.

We attended 2 cool Halloween parties and I was planning to pick quince at Rocky Brook Orchard. I love to make quince jam and quince paste. But, it is just too cold today…it even snowed for a while and the wind was howling. Hopefully I will get there Wednesday.

On Sunday I gathered up my piece from the ” BIRDS OF A FEATHER” exhibit at Kathrine Lovell’s Gallery and Studio at Tiverton Four Corners. I will post it in an upcoming blog post. It is a departure from my usual work~so prepare to be surprised.

Plantation  is a 12″ by 9″ mixed media  framed in a cherry frame.

Plantation is also available  as Phone and I Pad covers from Keka cases .  I chose Plantation for my phone and I get so many compliments-very nice to hear.

  1. Using gold leaf adds a strength and excitement that I would think impossible to get any other way. It is totally stunning. I love, love, love the cherry frame too.

  2. This is such a rich and interesting composition! I really like the colors you chose (and the frame ties everything beautifully together, too.)

    Snow?!!! Acck, is it that time already? I did break out my winter coat yesterday – had a concert in NJ – but it looks like I can still keep my plants out on the balcony for maybe a week longer since the temps in the city are warming up a bit this week. Fingers crossed…

    Stay warm!

    This is so lovely… I think they will hug soon!

  4. Beautiful fall colors…..your work is so rich and full of details! And congrats on raising money for cancer too!

  5. I love the colorful foliage. The gold just makes it sparkle! And I’ve never heard of quince jam or picking them. Sounds interesting.

    Love at first bite!

  7. The frame is a perfect compliment to this piece. The gold is wonderful, and I love all of your curly curvy plantlings! We have had some cold (for us) weather too. I am loving it because it actually feels like fall 🙂

  8. Nice to catch up with what you’ve been up to recently. I enjoyed the links to the other artists’ sites. The weather is extraordinarily warm here in the UK for the time of year. I still have geraniums in flower. Ann
