Red Cottage in Fall III

It's not a repeat post... 
...just a new version... a rerun of a good one!
The last Red Cottage in Fall was for my school's fall festival silent auction.  My principal said up front that she wanted it and planned to bid to win, but one of my students out bid her. 

It was a pretty stress-free painting, so I did another.   

Usually I get to enjoy my paintings for a time while they wait to be bought. Sadly, I didn't get to hold on to either one of these and I really liked them. Hmmmm... maybe one more?? :)

Original Oil Painting - 8"x 10"


  1. You did a super job on the leaves. How close to,the same were they? I can never do it as it seems I got one shot in me and then it is on t something else. Doesn't it feel like you lose a part of yiu, but then it is good as a part of yiu lives on elsewhere.

    1. Thank you, Nelvia. I did those leaves with the side of a fan brush. I had to be careful that they didn't look contrived. Yes, I'll have to admit that I do feel a little bit like a cheater when I re-paint something. I don't do it very often.

  2. I was so thrilled to receive such a wonderful piece from such a talented artist and educator!!!! It will always have a special place in my office.

    1. Oh, thank you. It's a peaceful little scene... maybe a good thing to have in the principal's office. :)
