Summer's End

Okay, summer isn't officially over yet but my husband went back to school today and there was a definate chill in the air this morning. I have been a little Susie homemaker the last two days making banana bread, freezing 10 dozen ears of organic corn and making sauce from 40+ pounds of heirloom tomatoes from my Mom's garden.
I didn't grow enough tomatoes myself but I did add this strange fellow to the pot that came from my small garden. You can see quite clearly that this Roma is most certainly male:)

So now that the hubby is back to work I don't have as much time to paint during the day. I will try and paint more at night but it's difficult when you are tired from chasing around a two year old. I have a few pieces started and a Halloween sign featuring a black and white miniature horse almost finished. After visiting the Munnings exhibit last week, all I want to do it break out the oils!

Well, the kiddo is finally down for a nap so I better get back to work!
