I just liked these acorns sitting on top of an old tree stump. Fall is definitely coming!
Dedicated to everyone who likes to be nutty sometimes, we can’t take life too seriously all the time. Enjoy the little things while you can!

It is my hope to always bring out something good and positive in all that I do! Despite our outward differences of faith, religion, culture, or even global location, one thing we all as humans embrace is a sense of acceptance, and belonging. Our art is an expression of who we are and a language that needs no words. It is my hope that my work depicts all that is loving and positive in which to edify others. I give all my thanks to my God who has uniquely and wonderfully created us in His image.

    This is fun:>) Good thing you captured it when you did because the squirrels, chipmunks, and deer are on the move and hoarding away (or eating) anything available:>) Congratulations on your feature in the Art In Math Group – FAVE!
