Falls Barn Oxford

It's that time of year again when fields turn golden and the light brings a glow to the woodlands. My favorite barn now sits among grasses that are thigh-high and wave with each passing breeze. I love to come upon this place in the morning when the sun seems to highlight the aging wood and yellowing fields.

It's been an incredibly busy week for me with obligations, paintings to put up, take down, classes, car maintenance, house chores, celebratory lunches, supply gathering for new classes I'll teach and more. There's been little time for resting and it seems September has blown by with the wind. Hopefully October will be a bit slower ...! LOL

Weather has been warm and beautiful, with summer temps returning in the afternoons. I picked the final fig from my trees and my first persimmon. The fall apples have started to arrive, and I am in heaven. My favorites - Pinova (very hard for me to find in my part of North Carolina), Honey Crisp and Pink Cripps -- YUMM!!!! I see a lot of apple dishes on my menu!

Hope you have a great weekend!

You have become a master painter Lin and I'm happy I watched your progress. This is just beautiful.

Lin - what a beautiful fall scene. The barn's setting is super...I love the foliage that surrounds it. Such talent Lin - wish I could take a workshop from you...I know you would have so much to teach me. Hope October does give you some down time...especially to enjoy those apples...Honey crisp are a favorite of mine too! Have a great week-end.

WOW. I was thinking the same thing -- your landscapes have grown better and better over the years and I believe you are a master painter too!

This one is especially lovely with all the details. I especially like the trees and foliage in the background in various stages of turning color against the constant evergreens. I love the way my eye travels from the front to the back, taking in the changes in color and detail.

Apples are my favorite part of fall too, after the foliage that is. We don't get the variety here in KY that we had in VT and many come from Indiana and overseas but I found a bag of local tiny Jonathans recently and they are just right for that small snack in the evening to keep me on my diet.
Big hugs,
Lorraine

Oh, your colors in this are gorgeous!!! This just screams fall.

Sounds like you have been busy since you got back home. I hope you have some free time to enjoy these autumn days. They have been really gorgeous up here.
