This is a 16x20" oil on canvas. I love painting these baskets and the flowers are fun, too.

I had fun painting this little rabbit and making it a tiny painting. It has been a while since I've picked up a four by four inch panel. Maybe I will make a few more small ones, they are finished quickly and look nice in the small frames I get from Franken Frames.
It is not raining today. It is cloudy and more rain is expected this afternoon and tonight. Lots of branches are down, but thankfully no damage in our area.

Tea And Candles, 6 x 6" oil on gessobord, ©2015, Fay Terry

This is one of my favorite paintings from the past that makes me feel warm just looking at it. 
This has been a chilly, windy week-end which completes two straight weeks of rain. I may have to make some hot tea just to chase away the cold and damp. I hope you are staying warm and dry. There  will be sunshine by Tuesday, according to our local forecast.
Thanks for stopping by.

Color For A Rainy Day

LOVE RAIN, 6 x 6 " oil on gessobord, ©2015, Fay Terry

$100 plus shipping

We are under a state of emergency because of the weather and flooding so many of the week-end activities are being canceled. This includes the 37th annual Autumnfest which is held in Southern Pines. It includes a 5K Road Race and booths set up on Broad Street with delicious food and wonderful arts and crafts, pottery, and much more.  It's too bad it won't be held this year but safety comes first. There are already some trees down and the ground is saturated already. Pine trees fall with the windy conditions and the roads are slick with water and pine needles, not good for the runners!

If you are interested in this painting and you are local, I will deliver it to you and refund your shipping fee.  Just let me know. Thanks for looking at my blog!

This has been a terrific month!  I have had so much fun doing this challenge and I'm sure I will do the next one that Leslie hosts in January. Thanks for following along and for all the great comments I received during September. Congratulations to all the artists who participated and thank you, Leslie, for your enthusiasm and for inviting us all to join your challenge.

Leaf Shadows

Between The Rains, 8 x 8 " oil on Raymar panel, ©2015, Fay Terry

$150, free shipping

The rain continues with very brief intervals of sunshine. It was during one sunny interval that I was able to paint this before the clouds returned.  We still have a bit of blue sky without the bright sun and shadows.
My "Endless Summer" Hydrangeas have not bloomed once all summer because I pruned them too much and too late.  Last evening I was on the porch and saw an amazing sight--lots of blooms on six plants. It's going to be nice to have October blue Hydrangeas!

Lemon, no butter

Lobster, Arundel Wharf, 6 x 8 " oil on linen panel, ©2015, Fay Terry

$100, free shipping

Kennebunkport is one of my favorite places in Maine because I grew up going there with my grandmother and later with my Uncle Paul. For many years my husband and I spent a week at the Colony Hotel with my uncle and our children  every summer.  It was fun for me to have some time this summer visiting relatives while exploring new and old favorite places. Arundel Wharf restaurant holds many memories for me.

The only thing better than painting a lobster is eating it. I have painted some of these beauties from life, but this was done from a photo I took of my dinner while I was enjoying the views of water and boats.

Tea Time

It's almost time to start up the tea kettle. We drink ice tea most of the year but it will soon be nice to have some hot tea. Our daytime temperatures are still around eighty degrees so hot tea is not appealing yet. 
I've always liked painting tea kettles, especially when they are bright and shiny like this one. 
Thanks for viewing my art.  I hope you are enjoying the regularity of my daily posts once again.

No Room For Us

Move Over, Lemon! 6 x 6 " oil on gessobord, ©2015, Fay Terry

We just got home from the mountains and I did this late day painting pretty fast. It's been a rainy week-end but even with that it was so beautiful in the High Country.  We visited some great art galleries and we did a lot of walking and shopping in Blowing Rock and Valle Crucis. Good thing we had our rain gear. We also tried some wonderful restaurants, so I can't wait to go back.

I am excited that the painting challenge is winding down. It has been a lot of fun.
