This Season of Thanksgiving

> Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of hot tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art. As we enter this season of Thanksgiving and we rejoice in the splendor of the season there are many who face difficulties and hardships this season. I am thankful for the creativity and talents I have been given and most of all that I can share them in ways to help others. Recently I was asked to donate a painting to help raise money for Share Ourselves, a local nonprofit organization that provides many wonderful services to our local communities, including a Thanksgiving Food Drive, Adopt a Family Christmas program, free medical clinic, after school programs and many other services.


I wanted to paint a garden painting and since my roses are no longer blooming I purchased lovely red roses and sunflowers from the market for the painting. Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant to see the inspirations.

The beginning of the Garden Day Painting




I decided to add more Sunflowers and change the color of the flowers in the pots to purple to create harmony with the yellow. I was having a hard time getting the book on the chair to look like a book and decided to paint it out.





The completed painting.



Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good." Psalm 136.1



Thank you for stopping by. I sincerely appreciate your visits, comments and those who are following my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special. I will be taking a little blog break next week and when I return will be painting holiday snowmen "door greeters" for a fundraiser for SOS. I would love for you to paint along with me.


Have a lovely week and enjoy the wonders of the season and the beauty that abounds. Blessings, Erin
