"Golden Days" original acrylic painting by Nancy Laliberte

4" x 4" x 1-3/8" acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas
available at Riverfront Arts Center, Stevens Point, WI

The midwest landscape of August is filled with such yummy color. I have been thoroughly enjoying the field patterns of golds and greens paired up with the beautiful skies we have been having (when it has not been raining), and punctuated with a few extra spots of color. 

It reminds me of my childhood growing up on a Wisconsin farm and soaking up those last days of summer while running around barefoot with the cool grass under my feet, the golden sun warming my skin, and seeing all of the field patterns created by the hard-working farmers, my father included. These images are etched in my mind and in my heart. I love bringing them out with paint just as one might pull out a favorite photo album filled with pictures of the past. 

Keep enjoying your summer, and be sure to spend some time running around barefoot in the grass before the snow flies ;)

Thank you for being a part of my art journey, 
you are appreciated!
