We've been fortunate this fall to visit many different gardens as part of our lecture tour series, and we've seen such wonderful flowers, trees, vegetables. This painting was done from Old Salem Gardens and one of their historic, recreated gardens. The gourds were in the field, drying, and would have been used by earlier Moravians as dippers or bowls ...
The gardens there were dressed for fall with cole and cool-weather crops coming in. The freshyly added compost made everything look so dressed for the season!

The weather too has been absolutely GORGEOUS! Cool in the morning - and this week, mid 70s and sunshiney! The leaves are turning more yellow and here and there a spot or two of red ... yep, season's turned!


  1. I love how you did the shadows in this,

  2. Hi Lin - Wonderful washes and values. Hope all is well I don't get to Flickr much anymore. Have a great fall, Linda

  3. I,m here too.
    The autumn is here and you to be able to catch his tones and shades. Lovely!

  4. Lin, I am loving your paintings, so full of color and excitment! Beautiful
