The Colors of Fall

One Dozen ~ part of a larger painting

Autumn is in the air! Evening breezes are cooler, the days are shorter, the apples are crisp, there is an extra quilt on the bed, even the coffee seems to taste better in the cool morning air.

These peachy-orange roses were calling to me last week ~ the color is very much “fall” and they made the studio smell wonderful while I worked on this painting.

What inspires you? The change of seasons is always inspiring to me, especially when the temperatures cool off in the Autumn. The season brings its own color palette thanks to Mother Nature.

The Colors of Fall, was inspired when I found this knobby gourd and some rosehips. It is a bit larger than I usually paint, measuring in at 12″x16″.

Apples and Rose Hips, 12″x16″

There is no doubt in my mind that Mother Nature knows what she is doing. Her colors of the season really work for me. How about you? Are you taking longer walks in the cooler air? Are you stopping to notice the changes in foliage or how the light hits certain areas?

Get out there! Be inspired! Take a walk! I think I’m ready to head up to Apple Hill to the orchards. I want crisp apples and maybe even an apple doughnut. Cheers to September, because it will soon be October!
