Fall Semester: 14 weeks, 2014

Fall Semester: 14 weeks
This fall semester I would work on a small painting each week.  They all fit into a box.
Funny, there are 16 paintings...semantics I guess.  Two days off for fall break so that was a partial week, and we didn't have class on Labor Day Monday.  Guess those weeks don't count.

Ridge, 2014

Winter has come to Huckleberry Ridge. 
The leaves are off the trees and the fields have been raked by the harvester.  I can see the ridge.

Early November the fields are waiting to be harvested.
Soybeans and corn, both dry on their stalks.

Apple Orchard, 2014

We inherited the apple orchard with 55 assorted fruit trees, mostly various kinds of apples and some pears, peaches and a single sour cherry.  The peaches were hit hard the first winter we lived here and we lost them all.  The sour cherry gave us wonderful 4th of July pies until a few years ago.  We tried to keep it going but we lost the sour cherry too.  The pears haven't been producing, but this year with the new bee hives our apples are WONDERFUL.  Homemade applesauce for Hanukkah!

Pressed Shirt (aka My Financial Advisor), 2014

I love laundered shirts on men, so fresh and crisp.  Nice with a tie, too.
