Pressing Toward Fall

A hint of Fall chill can be felt in the air and the leaves of the cottonwoods are beginning to show hints of gold, which foreshadow the wonderful fall display to come.

The historic east side neighborhood in Kalispell becomes a truly special place when fall hits and turns the tree lined streets into golden tunnels.

Sunflower Arrangement, Oil on Canvas   10"x8" 
These eyecatching sunflowers were on display at Flowers by Hansen in downtown Kalispell.  I painted them on site during their second taste and see event.  The lovely yellow orange pops of color were contrasted by the red candle and strongly evoked a feeling of fall.
