"Lantern's of Gold III" ~ 30"w x 24"h Hudson River School A Painting a Day Autumn Tree Landscapes by Connie Tom

I've been trying to keep within the season in my posting, especially before Thanksgiving. So here's another one with autumn colors. To me they speak of harvest and bountifulness, of the Pilgrims, of Indian corn and the first Thanksgiving. ~ Enjoy!

"Autumn Symphony" ~ 20" x 30" Hudson River School A Painting a Day Landscapes by Connie Tom

My hope and prayer in painting this 'Autumn Symphony' series of paintings is to give to the viewer a view of nature's beauty that they might not see everyday. Autumn is without question my favorite season to paint because of the myriads of bright, bold, and beautiful colors. Happy colors... Festive colors. I hope my paintings will be like windows on the walls of their homes, which will surround them with this symphony of joyous color with all it's beauty, complexity, diversity and richness of nature's autumn in this great country of ours. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed painting it! ~Connie
This work will be up for auction on Barry Chappell's Fine Art Showcase. Please watch this blog for exact dates and times.

"For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55:10-11.
