So How Was the Market?

Pumpkins lined the driveway…


My daughter’s watercolor cards hung on a string on the fence…


My art displayed on our old barn…



Coffee and Scones for sale…


And a lot of this and that…


Even some architectural antiques…


Mr. Knightly, the rooster, got in on the action…


And I sold his portrait painting…

And the Cute Boots! painting…

And my Sunflower painting…

Two of my mini paintings…

Autumn Flowers

Farmer's Market Sunflowers

And one of my very favorite paintings, because it is so simple…the Window…


Now if you want to try a super delicious fall scone recipe, my daughter just posted it on her blog…Pumpkin Pecan Scones with Maple Glaze.Β  They are fantastic!Β  We even had a wonderful friend bring incredible gluten-free scones and they were amazing!

  1. So lovely!!! All of it…the art, the decor, the scones (gotta try that recipe!), the photography, and of course Mr. Knightly! πŸ˜‰ The window painting is my favorite too. At first glance, I was almost overcome with a wave of peaceful nostalgia… I’m not even sure why. What were you thinking about when you painted it?


    1. I think I saw a photo of an old window kind of like this a long time ago and it just kind of stuck in my head. I love simplicity and this painting was just that. I need to do more of these kinds of simple things.:)


      1. Yes, you do. πŸ˜‰ It seems like any kind of art starts out with trying lots of different things, mastering technique, seeing how finely detailed and close to “perfect” you can become… and then one day you can just let it all go… and at that point simple, pure, ego-free art can flow through you. I truly think you achieved that with this painting… wish it hadn’t sold already, I would have bought it. πŸ™‚


          1. Sure! As long as it doesn’t feel forced. As a creative person, I know how it can be to try to duplicate something with not necessarily the same results. I wouldn’t want you to feel any pressure about it. But if the spirit moves you… I wouldn’t say no. πŸ˜‰


  2. This looks like fun , yes lots of work too! Your paintings are fabulous !!! What a talented family ! So lucky to have such beautiful day for your sale, sounds like it was a success!
