We always have a painting displayed on an easel in the sitting room alcove of our bedroom. They change with the seasons, a tea party in summer, a Christmas door, etc. When we went looking for an Autumn painting all we could find was a vaguely autumnal colored barn scene. Mac decided to paint us one instead and asked what I'd like in it. I said pumpkins, lots of pumpkins. So he went looking for ideas and found some pumpkins he could use as a basic design and build on. The new header is the finished , though he says it's not and plans to sneak a few more strokes in, painting.
I absolutely love it, one of his best.
