"Autumn Near Dog Creek's Mouth - preliminary study"

You just can't beat this November's weather...I am hard pressed to remember a November this mild or warm! Now word is out that we may get some wet/slightly white weather in a day or two...well that's bound to happen - it is November after all!
After this nice Autumn color and weather, I've been working on ideas for art work and printing some images as open edition photographic prints. I finished a small oil painting a few days back - this small painting was worked up as a guide to work from for a larger painting that I'll hopefully get to yet this fall before winter sets in. The location is on some county land in SE O'Brien County...its of Dog Creek just a few yards before it dumps into the Little Sioux River. This little creeks runs through some pretty territory for a very small stream - a neat unassuming little stream.
With the Holiday season now approaching, there are a couple art exhibits and shows coming up that I'm taking part in! One is currently at Arts on Grand in Spencer, Iowa - their "Christmas in the Gallery", which is currently running and goes through December 27th; a lot of really nice Christmas related gifts and seasonal artwork!
Also, there is the "Holiday Open House" coming up in Peterson, Iowa! This yearly event will be taking place at Barb McGee's Gallery in downtown Peterson. A great little town in a picturesque setting - a great gallery and a top notch assortment of artists! Enjoy some good treats and good conversation and great art! That's on Saturday December 3rd from 9am - 5pm!
Happy Thanksgiving coming up next week - enjoy November!
