Inspiration Avenue's theme this week: autumn splendor. I love working with these warm, rich colors so it was easy to get into the mind set to create something representing the splendor, the richness of fall.
Working on 9x12 watercolor paper with acrylics, I played with blending a few fall colors. I added some leaf stencils and a little collage (I cut up a mag picture of sand dunes - pretty cool abstract patterns, huh?). I was pleasantly surprised at how well the paper held up to the acrylics. I'm gradually getting more comfortable using them and learning what they will do. The red blobs at the bottom are my fingers - I got red paint on a couple, so just painted them all and left my fingerprints!
Another way for me to appreciate and share the glory of fall is with my photography - here are a few of my faves:
