Painting - Photography
The Fall Tractor image is from a photograph I took one autumn while wandering the lovely Fruit Loop in Hood River, OR. The image was edited using brushstroke technique to achieve a painterly, more rustic feel reflecting the age of the tractor.
I love the season of autumn, also known as fall, of course. With the coming of autumn, the season between summer and winter, the amount of sunlight decreases and the days and nights become much colder. The warm days and the chilly nights activate the color change in the leaves of the deciduous trees. The September Equinox is often considered the beginning of this season in North America. The months of September, October and November are considered to be the autumn months in North America, while March, April and May are South America’s autumn months.
Many foods are harvested in autumn. Some of them especially associated with this season, like pumpkins and apples, are represented in this painting. People around the world have celebrated this season with festivals of gratitude for successful harvests. In the U.S. and Canada, the celebration of gratitude is called Thanksgiving and is a national holiday.

Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope and gratitude is my lifelong passion and gift for the earth, hence the name of my art business, For the Earth. My mother painted in oils when I was young and encouraged my own drawing, painting and handcrafting in all forms. My father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result of these loving influences, I am a lifelong student of both mediums. I am grateful to my wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson, for training my eye and technique. I hope you will enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed its creation.
