11-29-09 "The Red Shed"

This is a typical scene that you might see as you drive down any rural road in southern Iowa. A farm had need of many barns or "sheds"; hog shed, chicken coup, calf shed, grainery, amoung many others. The farthest rolling hill in the background is a corn field ready for the combine to harvest the grain.

11-21-09 "Grandson's Leaves"

I gathered some leaves for the grandsons to jump and play in and it turned ou to be a great afternoon. When the fun time was over I brought into the house three of the best leaves for me to begin some drawings. The contrast betwen the large yellow leaf and the purplish background work well together.

work in progress

I can't avoid leaves! They are everywhere in our yard and I must mulch them and put them on the garden.

11-7-09 "Country Beauty"

We took our grandson to a local pumpkin patch and there I discovered this lovely home and all these flowers. The flower beds had taken over everthing and were bursting from their bounderies and spilling out into the walks. SOLD
