A Fall Still Life

I love this season - just before the leaves fall, everything is golden.  The richness and warmth of the colors are inspiring.   I tried to bring a little bit of that indoors with this photo.

New Paintings for Fall

This is really why I haven't posted.  I've been painting........
Each of these paintings measure 14" square and are on stretched canvas, finished on all edges meant to be displayed frameless but would look great framed as well.   With this size, I like the idea of having a
wall of a grid of paintings, for example nine paintings hung 3 x 3.  Either with color or subject matter
as a unifying theme.

They will be on exhibit at the local Hudson Artists Association Fall Show at the Steven Shaar Community Center on Main Road, Hudson, October 15th through the 17th.

The second painting of the pears and yellow daisy is a small version of the 40" painting that I did late this summer.

Wow! October?.......really?

Time flies when you're having fun....I can't believe I haven't posted for October yet!

I received an email from Seth Apter of The Altered Page (a wonderfully inspiring site for those interested in mixed media, especially book arts) to tell me that my contribution to his on line compilation of mixed media artists in a section called The Pulse will be viewable on Monday, October 17th.  Sorry I think that
was a rather long winded sentence.  But do check in on Monday to have a look at my contribution as well as other artists.  Make sure you're comfortable and have a coffee close by.  You're going to want to stay awhile!
