I meant to post this last week. Then things just got crazy. Hope it's not too late for anyone to get in on the fun.

On another note, we didn't do a lot at the farm. Just enjoyed being there. The pups got me up early…they wanted to chase the deer, I think. As I followed them around the side of the house, I saw this and ran inside to get my camera:


 Isn't that sky gorgeous?




Those were taken at the side of the house facing the front.
Then I walked to the back and saw the sun kissing the trees at the back of the pasture:


Sigh. I love Autumn.

 The clouds were pretty too!


Slowly, the trees are turning colors. We won't have peak color (it's not like some places but works for me ) until closer to Thanksgiving as long as we don't get a freeze that just turns them brown. Each time we go up, a few more are gold or red. I love it!

I've been busy trying to finish up a painting for a client. She wanted a large canvas with poppies for her dining room. Here's a portion of it:


I actually finished the painting this past week but she wants part of 1 Cor. 13 on it so I need to add the words as soon as the paint dries. I'll share the whole painting when I'm done. And I'm excited to say, I have another commission to start on too. Love that I can actually do a painting for someone. It's pretty exciting!

I hope you have a blessed week.
Hugs,
Cecilia

    1. Thanks Jane! I'm very pleased with how it's turned out. I'm a little nervous about putting the words on it as I'll be painting them but I'm sure it will turn out.
      Hope your day is going well,
      Cecilia

  3. Wow! Those poppies are beautiful! Looks like Autumn is coming to Texas as it leaves us and is turning into winter.

    1. Yes, finally. We've had so much rain the past couple of weeks. Our pond filled up for the first time since we bought the property.
      Thanks!

  4. I think there must be no better feeling then doing something you love and getting paid for it. You're very fortunate and talented, and I'm so glad you're getting the recognition you so deserve!

    This weekend I noticed the leaves were almost all off the trees around the lake. We have definitely passed peak. It's getting to be the time of year when I wouldn't mind gettin' outta Dodge for greener pastures, but it ain't gonna happen.

    The pictures of the sky are just stunning! Nature is really the best decorator there is.

    1. Thanks, Doreen!
      I wish we'd get snow a couple of times in the winter but we seldom get any. Ice occasionally. I'm going to enjoy the leaves while I can before they all fall off!

      It took a few tries to get the pictures to capture it BUT I finally figured out what setting I needed. LOL. It was beautiful…worth having to get up. ha.
