Alannah Michelle Lasher

This is my new little granddaughter - Alannah Michelle Lasher.

Born on October 8th, she is a most precious gift. If you'd like to see more pictures and read her story, please visit her blog -

8" x 10" oil on canvas covered hardboard - painted en plein air on 9/21/07 -
This will be used as a study for a larger studio painting. The morning was unsettled and windy with patchy clouds skipping across the sky. It was as though Fall couldn't decide whether to encroach into Summer - or wait a few more weeks. There was a rustling of leaves signaling the transition of seasons. Patches of red foliage have begun peeking through the Summer green.

This scene is in the same meadow where I painted "Wisdom Oak" and "Just Saying Good Morning". I love this property located near my home in NW Georgia.

out of town for new granddaughter :o)

I will be out of town for about 2 - 3 weeks visiting my daughter in Virginia. She's expecting her first child, Alannah, early next week. I'll be away from the easel - but with camera in hand to shoot scenes in and around Richmond.

Please check in again soon. And be sure to visit our plein air painters blog at to see paintings featuring the scenery in Georgia, Tennessee, the Carolinas, and Florida. Our artists are capturing the changing of the seasons in some wonderful paintings. You won't be disappointed.
