The great pumpkin patch

Fall would not be complete without a trip to the pumpkin patch to paint of course!  There's just something about being surrounded by pumpkins, witnessing the leaves tumble all around, hearing walnuts plop to the ground that gets me ready for the season ahead.  Orange is one of those colors that makes me smile. 
We are thankful to farmers Scott and Tracy of Creekside Valley Farm in Mequon for letting us explore and create on their beautiful property.  They have created a work of art on their land and we are grateful they are sharing their vision. 
These small plein air pieces will be used for larger paintings when I need an infusion of orange, most likely in March! 
I love how the buildings were connected in the distance
