Arrived!

The peak of autumn has arrived!   I knew it would ...just a matter of time.   Only a couple days after the hard frost and all the hills are bathed in beautiful colors.
Fall's foliage never ceases to capture my eye.   It is so lovely to view the  yellows, oranges and reds against the backdrop of a blue sky.

       Even on a partly cloudy day these vibrant hues seems to glow.

While waiting for some showers to pass got busy painting some more ACEO'S.  Have really enjoyed experimenting with these small pieces.  Even did a couple on some watercolor canvas (they are on the bottom left and center).  Most are mixed media...pen and ink, watercolor pencil, and watercolor.
Well hope everyone is enjoying the beauty of autumn this week.

 Have a wonderful evening - God Bless!

  3. Bonjour chère amie,

    Bien que je n'aime pas du tout l'automne je dois admettre qu'elle nous offre de beaux spectacles.
    Merci pour le partages de ces somptueux clichés.
    Je trouve merveilleux ces petites oeuvres qui créent un magnifique patchwork artistique.

    Gros bisous ☼

  6. Gorgeous views and lovely paintings, thank you for posting them!

    I'm blessed in that, by driving down the mountain, I can 'make' autumn last for nearly a month. At 7,000 feet above sea level it comes around the end of September-first of October and the trees slowly change color as the cold tempertures move down to the 1,200 foot level. Below that, there aren't really four seasons in California.

    Blessings,

    Victoria

  18. Oh what beautiful country you live in. I miss the color changes from Mn. as here its mostly green. But I did plant a lot of Japanese maples.
    Your ACEO's are fantastic. You are so talented. We are moving into the rainy season. I am already missing summer.

  19. HI Debbie! I've been away too long, but I did go back through your lovely posts and enjoyed your beautiful photos and paintings. I see that fall has arrived in the country and is turning those leaves to shades of orange and red! We have had nice weather the past few days, but now suddenly cool again. Some of our trees are completely bare! Your ACEO'S are just beautiful! Especially love that little bird! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! ~ Diane
