These are my latest paintings on Etsy.






"I Want to Go Too" (sold)





and "Best Friends" (Sold)













I am really in love with these and I have a similar one in the works, but before I can finish it I have to finish my Jack O Lantern game for Nino's classroom party.
We have been very busy enjoying the fall weather. I have been trying to plan fun fall activities for the kids every weekend. Cheap, fun fall activities that is. Last weekend we went to a school fall festival, the flea market, and a candle lit tour of Daniel Boone's home. Actually, we learned it was really his son's, but he stayed there. I wish I had pictures. It was quite a night to remember. The whole historic town was lit by only candle light. Not an artificial light in the place! It was beautiful! Oh, and the sweetest little white chapel lit only in candle light. What a sight. It was a long night, 6:30 to 10:00pm and each building had a form of entertainment. There was music, poetry reading of Poe, history lessons and actors acting out little skits. It was quite a night, and a warm full moon night, perfect for walking around. If you live close by, keep it in mind for next year or it looks like they have another candlelight tour for Christmas.

The paintings are gorgeous! I love the sort of muted colors with the pop of orange. So lovely. Your candlelit evening sounds magical! It is finally cooling off here so I feel like I can enjoy outdoor activities again! :) ~Lauren
