Call me crazy but I am loving red paint lately. This started out as a painting loosely based on lupine flowers but morphed a bit. Another knife painting on prepared card, 8x10.
And a close-up of luscious red paint.

Here's something you don't read about much in all of the "you're not a landscape painter unless you paint plein air" literature:

And here is a better pic of my friend Jack.

I was putting away the Halloween things when I heard something say, "Paint me!" I knew right away who it was. He begged last year too. But now when I heard his deep gravelly voice (he smokes when he thinks I'm not paying attention), and looked again at the stem perched so jauntily on his bald head, I couldn't resist. He tries to look tough but that toothy grin gets me every time. He's my friend Jack, but he says that's Mr O'Lantern to you.

This was inspired by a grueling 5-mile trail race my husband and I did as a fund-raiser for a local mountain bike club. It was called Battle at Big Creek but should have been called Battle at Big Rock, for all the rocks on the path. My feet were sore for two days, even with trail shoes. But it was one of those glorious fall mornings that we wait all year for.

I adore mums, especially at this time of year. You know it will be one of the last flowers you see til spring. They are especially fun to paint with a palette knife. This one was very hard to get a good photo. I'll keep trying.
