I don’t have as much time to get outside as much as I’d like now that the fall weather is in full swing – which is a shame, because the colors are fading fast and the weather has been perfect. But there were pies to be baked and turkey to be eaten, so what could be done? I did manage to catch a little of the fall color – I want you all to know that I had to pick bits and pieces of fall leaves out of the wet paint on these, as the leaves were showering down even as I was painting. So they’re mixed media now – forever embedded with the very leaves they depict. I don’t know if I get any esoteric artist points for that, but I feel like I probably should.
