"Honeycrisp" 6x6 oil on canvas

Apple season. My favorite -- Honeycrisp, fresh from the orchard. But that's not why I painted this. Sharon gave me an assignment, "paint fruit". Yes, class at the Academy is back in session. I spent one week, painted a portrait of a beautiful model, Leslie. And promptly forgot to photograph it. (It wasn't as beautiful as the model, unfortunately.)

Now, I'm back in VT for the month of October. Can't pull myself away from Fall in VT. Hence, my assignment. . . but, so appropriate. Apple season. One of those signs of Fall in VT.

"Waiting" 12x12 oil on panel

Revisiting an image I painted once before. This one is larger (12x12) but it still worked. We pass the moorings at Point Bay Marina when we sail. But this was a particularly lovely evening. Not sure I'm finished with this. Maybe a few more tweaks, but I wanted to get a post up today. It feels like summer is coming to a close. Lovely Fall-ish weather, but I'm not ready to say good bye to summer.
