Well, Bev, I just chose a new favorite!! This is wonderful--how loosely painted and yet all the essential details to "know" the painting are there!:) The figure and the leaf pile are my favorite parts--and the smoke--and the color and...!

I really, really like this one too!!!! Fall is my favorite season and raking and burning leaves is always a special memory! Thanks so much for reminding me of younger days Bev!

Felicia...it is my favorite time of year also! I noticed my neighbor was already raking what little leaves had fallen and burning them. *LOL* but then he is a nutcase with his yardwork.
Our neighborhood turns into a huge smokeout in the fall. Lots of leaf burning here.

It's all been said, Bev. Beautiful. You said the figure looks a bit strange to you - I was startled at first when I looked - I saw a headless torso - then I saw a person with a hood over their head - so that works. I think it's because there is hardly any indication of a face - but the more I look at this one, the more I like it. The colors, the "story", the direct experience - can't you just smell the leaves burning and perhaps - is that long light hair I see in the figure so a woman? Yep, I'm liking this one a lot!! Can't say this is my favorite - still really like that ptg of Spook waiting for the milk at the dairy barn and the one of Spook and his two friends waiting and - well, as you can tell, all of them are my favorites :)

Rhonda...that is why I am not real happy with the figure. I had a blue hooded sweatshirt ....did not turn out like I thought it should have. Glad you like spook and friends *SMILE*

Very very pretty Bev...don't get Fall out of your system too soon..I'm enjoying your Fall colors. Fall is too short to begin with.:)

Nice one, Beverly! I can smell the smoke.

I like the figure--it makes you work a little to see if it has a hood or if it's shrouded in smoke or if it's turned away .... or if it's The Headless Leafburner who'll come after you if you don't eat all your fall veggies....:p

I love the fire under the leaves, too.

Definitely have caught the Fall feeling here as well. Good job :D

09-29-2003, 09:39 AM
Bev, those sweatshirts are back in vogue... I knew what it was right away... My youngest son calls them "hoody's" and he had to have 2 new ones to start school... :D

Beautiful fall scene...
