The End of August--Original American Landscape Oil Painting

August is almost over. While most of the trees are still green, there are signs of autumn. The grasses are turning red, the air is crisp, and moisture is apparent here in Washington State. Heavy clouds are lumbering across the sky and threatening rain on this long holiday weekend. Next week school begins and the weather is destined to change again. September in Washington state is usually warm and beautiful just as kids head back to their schools' clostrophobic classrooms without air conditioning. I hope they all enjoy this last wonderful weekend of the summer season before they drag themselves back to early morning get ups. This little 5x7 inch oil painting celebrates the Labor Day weekend and the end of summer.

Hi Nancy,
This is one of my favourites so far. Something about the colours, the orange and blue, really catch my eye! I just love it.
