“The Harvest” – Auction Mini Painting!

Hey everyone! I am excited to announce my first Bad Apple Art Collective auction is coming up ^^
The Bad Apples are a group of artists who once a month hold a themed art auction. November’s theme is “Mother Nature” – and for me that is usually a antlered girl 😉

But really, I would use any excuse to paint another! The auction begins on November 27th 2013 at 5 pm EST on the Bad Apple’s Facebook page.

I love autumn, more so where I grew up in Maryland. The east coast of the US is known for their spectacular fall colors and there was nothing better than walking through dry leaves on the ground and breathing in that fall air. In Europe I have found this season to just be the “rainy” season lol – it has done nothing but rain now for 2 months straight but I still remember those crisp sunny autumn days – and Thanksgiving.

I have also added gold paint throughout the painting!

Thanksgiving to me was cornucopias, stuffing, fall leaves, children in pilgrim costumes… but I think the idea of gathering to have a feast or the celebrate the end of the growing season stuck. In this painting I imagined my Mother Nature girl wondering off with her offering to the feast – somewhere deep in the wood.
