The Good Life On Pumpkin Hollow Farm

Those old survival instincts like to create panic and the news loves to induce it.

I will be participating in an art show October 2nd-4th and wanted to get a few more paintings done.  One never knows what the artwork will look like at the end.  It is a creation of its own and I always look forward to seeing what comes to life on the canvas. I started by …
