Pretty in Fall

Fall flowers in all shades of orange with a little pink

Doesn’t this color palette hug you, making you smile? My warm browns and oranges are pretty. I’m ready for fall. It’s been 100 degrees of humid weather. I’m ready for sweaters, boots and flowers. Ok, so I want pumpkin pie on the list. I can have hot tea again. I love tea, I should build a project for tea lovers. The coffee art prints and t-shirts are cute but I’m a tea drinker.

Back to my pretty in fall flowers. Painting these blooms brought me joy. What colors did I begin with?

Pink is one of my favorite colors to paint with. Pink is the color of frienship. It’s sweet. I don’t like the typical fall colors so I wanted to add a little pink. My yellow ended up looking like mustard. That’s fine. I used the yellow to paint flowers. The yellow helped warm up my orange and pink tones. I did mix in a redish-brown color with the yellow. It was beautiful.

Here’s to a good week! I’m going to go gather my to-do list. Thank you for reading!

Warm Wishes

The yellow ochre flowers are warm. The pink and orange flowers are cheerful. Lunchtime art felt so free. I laid down all of my painted papers and cut and arranged according to my eyes. I need to buy cheap brushes for painting textures. Letting go and painting is good for the spirit.

Have you tried collage? I’d love to see your work. To see finished pieces of my work visit here.

Colorful Mexico

Warm and colorful! So glad I cleaned my palette. These are the colors, so right for my culture page. This pattern reminds me of walking through Bazaar Del Mundo in San Diego. You walk through. In an instant your mood changes, uplifts—different is beautiful. We are part of it!
