God’s Little Gift to Us Every Autumn

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ashley Hawthorne @ 6:08 pm

I ran over to Lori’s house to see the painting at lunch and was reminded of how God gives us that beautiful color every fall- just like a gift!!  This painting is a documentation of His Gift!  …a reminder of Him sustaining us through life’s changes.  The change that happens in the lives of those trees is such a beautiful display of that.  Beauty LITERALLY comes out of the leaves death- to the point of people from all over the planet booking flights every fall and charting the “color” as it crawls south from Maine down into Connecticut.

Kyle and I were in New Hampshire when we took the picture that Lori used as inspiration.  We were specifically on the Kancamagus Scenic Byway.  The day was overcast and very cold, but the warmth of those reds, oranges, and yellows was enough to offset that by far!  WHAT BETTER WAY to remember that trip than to have this hanging above my fancy paprika red ZGallerie sofa??  No better way!

If you are interested in having one of these commissioned for your home – either to commemorate a special trip or just to add a bold splash of color to a room, please feel free to email me and I’ll let you know how the pricing works.  This one is about 5′ wide and 3′ tall, but she does lots of smaller work as well- if you aren’t able to afford a really huge one, consider that.  I see the artist every day at work and we at least talk 100 times every week 🙂  She is one of my favorite people in the world- by far.  So not only is the painting a reminder of New England, it is a reminder of our friendship- and how it helps sustain me on even the most stressful work days!  THANKS LORI!!!  So… drumroll….

This is Lori on the left in Super Mom Mode at my wedding!

Here she is with her beautiful daughter, Brooke.
