30 Days Hath September...
I have a secret to tell you...
I started this challenge a week ahead of time. I had to looking at my crazy plein air schedule. I had two plein air competitions and lots of autumn I wanted to paint. But I really enjoyed painting all the pieces I did out of my mind...no photo...no still life set up. They instructed me and challenged me and I am sure I will be doing more of these.
I ended up painting closer to 40 paintings in September. Below are some of the plein air paintings I did...some are still available so if you are interested please message me!!

16x12 oil by Wendie Thompson
Is there anything else on earth like a weeping willow? We had one planted in our front yard where I grew up. I don't know why they are called weeping...I think of them as cheering. They are normally the first ones to herald spring in Wisconsin...a most welcome sight indeed...almost an otherworldly green. They are also the last trees to loose their leaves in the fall...like guardians of all things living...like my father.
