Is it October Already?

We are back among the living! Everyone is feeling a little better and we are trying to catch up with school and life.

September seemed to fly by....I can't believe October is here already. While I was recouping, I painted a few things for updates this month.

For Early Work Mercantile, I painted a scenic painting of a colonist and Native American. This painting was inspired by an emblematic painting by Charles S. Raleigh (1830-1925).

I also painted a watercolor silhouette of a woman holding her gathered wheat in a basket.

And my last offering for Early Work is another profile portrait inspired a painting by Joseph H. Davis (1811-1865).

Please see more of each here:

Me on Early Work Mercantile

And for TDIPT, I had my husband cut five wood tiles and I painted silhouettes on each for a Thanksgiving Silhouette Swag:

Now I need to go blogging and catch up with everyone!

The swag is a super idea- I never would have thought of that. You do a great job with the silhouettes, I really like them. Glad you are better.
