It was a day in early summer and I was scratching my head about what to set up for Summer and Fall projects when my wife suggested that I actually paint something Fall-like.
So I'm sitting there still scratching my head because I didn't have any good references of Fall items in this day and age where we progress from the Fourth of July straight into Christmas.
As chance might have it I had some Indian corn in the shed from the past season that I had meant to feed to the chickens. I remembered the old rustic wood storage shed and the sawmill that was on my parents property.
Once upon a time people used Indian corn as a decoration and it didn't look tacky. Much like having a popcorn and cranberry garland on a real tree at Christmas, rather than plastic and aluminum.
So 'Indian Corn -08/2005' is dedicated to a time that was better in some ways lest we forget the joy of creating our own festive ornamentation from the items we have at hand.
