Time for Pumpkins

It is harvest time!  I have been painting pumpkins this week for Halloween and Thanksgiving events coming up at the LocAL Market on College Street in downtown Auburn.

Please come by for trick or treating on October 31 and for Punkin' Fest with Frou Frou on Nov. 21.  There will be treats and holiday decor items galore.  Check out to learn about participating makers (artists) and for details of ongoing events.

If old barns could talk... I wonder about the rich stories they would tell about bygone days.  For some time I have been wanting to paint this barn that I often drive by en route to our home at Lake Martin.

I am happy to share that I have discovered a talented local framer, Scott Moody.  He owns Chirpwood, Opelika's newest art gallery. He custom made this attractive hardwood frame. Scott shared this photo with me of Storyteller hanging in his gallery.

He is located just past downtown next to the Farmer's Market at 405 S. 10th Street.  I hope you can stop by to see his handiwork enhancing paintings from regional artists.  He also offers fresh coffee, pastries, fruit, and wifi in The Nest, a cozy den for the reader or thinker.
