"...The apples and pumpkins make me crave fall. Makes me want to put on a big warm scarf and go pumpkin picking!"
-- Kendall Hershey (comment to Alexandra on her bird house barn piece)

My dear fellow CT'ers, we have our newest member, Kendall, to thank for this new theme, and to an extent, Alexandra too, actually. I think we all enjoy that craving for Fall/Autumn, don't we? I know so! Tuesday morning, I couldn't wait to snuggle down into my cosy sweater even though the high was expected to be about 72F, just b/c I knew too we were also going to have clouds and glorious rain! So, yes, let's celebrate this upcoming season with RED APPLES! Maybe make a pie or something? And yes, RED apples specifically, although if you'd like to thrown in some green or yellow ones (my fave) in addition, feel free, but please do show at least one red apple. (If you want to do a drawing with B&W only, that's fine too — just colour the red only. That can be quite effective too like I did with Rupert's Nursery Rhyme piece over on my critters-portfolio.)

OK, so is it too early to go pumpkin picking? (Oooh, don't you love the sound of those words? Almost an onomatopoeia!) You know, come to think of it, I don't think I've EVER done that before. Never grew up with pumpkins and never really got into the taste of them but, hey, that does sound quite fun. Maybe I'll plunk one into a still-life with apples! Who knows? I've got a bushel full of crisp ideas already forming,,, but first, time to raid the fridge for some Autumnal like food! Hmmm... maybe that freshly made gooey brownie will have to do?:)

  3. Right up my alley! Every day at 3 pm I slice an apple and my dearest and I enjoy the crunch....Apples it is. I have several painting in my portfolio of apples...but will try to put a new one up. I have a blog friend coming next week from NY for several days, and we are leaving Sept. 25 for a trip to Oregon to visit our newest grandson, Tristan. But I will really try to get a new one done.

  8. Hi Mister Toast, I finally did it!! I got this in barely today-- thank you so much for this great and fun theme :-D I love what everyone did with it (I've commented on everyone's work; I'll check back to see if anyone else posted after me), and I had a great time drawing my piece. It gave me inspiration for education, which you can see in the post. Thanks for being awesome and your understanding in my missing last time/posting me on the regular contributor sidebar, I am honored ^_^ Hope you are well. -D.
