They have a list of prices and a box for money sitting on the porch – it’s on the honor system – and I’m sure they wouldn’t do it if people didn’t pay. I just love these unexpected surprises of country life that still crop up now and then!
I don’t go by this place very often any more, but fortunately I had my camera with me that day (I do try to remember to take it with me whenever I take a drive). The day I stopped it was overcast, but that didn’t stop me from taking a lot of photos. It was mid-fall and leaves were down but there were still plenty on the trees, so I also managed to get some beautiful fall foliage photos.
Anyway – these gourds were in a wooden crate and maple leaves had fallen randomly throughout. In this painting I’m attempting to capture the beauty of this quintessential fall scene.
I began by pouring miskit and let that dry. I then poured Daniel Smith quin. gold and quin. burnt orange and (I think) some vermillion hue, and let that dry.
