Indian Summer

I painted this a while ago. It's another one of those "blues and greens of summer" scenes. The trees have since begun to turn, and have even appeared to have peaked up in the mountains. It's beautiful for sure, but I'm not ready to let summer go yet.

Tom built a hoop house over half our garden, so after we got through the first bunch of frosts - one being a hard one - we were thrown into some very mild daytime temps for several weeks. I guess you could call it an Indian summer. The last week of September got up into the high 70s and felt just like summer all over again. It was hot, but cooled right down into the 30-40s at night. The basil is huge and still growing and tomatoes are still ripening. The hoop house is saving us.
