Autumn Reflections {Bountiful Observations no. 43}

Autumn Reflections

{8" x 8" (20.3 x 20.3 cm) – oil on canvas panel}
Framed painting: $400.00 + S&H

A new round of autumn color appeared this week in the DC region. It is more delicate and sensitive than the early exuberant colors that announced the changing of the season.

The subtle colors and near naked trees are inspiring a more thoughtful state of mind in me. I feel encouraged to savor the simple beauties of life, like holding with two hands a hot steaming mug of tea, hugging Naomi and bundling her in layers of blankets for our morning walk, and in the evening having a hot plate of stew or soup.

How does the autumn inspire you?

This painting is beautiful. I love how you describe this time of year, as inspiring a more thoughtful state of mind... Your words do that to me!

Your composition in this little painting is flowing and interesting. Great job!

Autumn Reflections is lovely Liz! I saw it on Leslie's blog just now. I added my painting... I had to laugh when I saw the number assigned to it. That number seems to follow me, and I am soooo conservative it's become a joke. Wanna trade numbers? LOL!
