Countdown to Autumn



There's nothing like a new season to make me restless and and on edge with new ideas. I had a long dry spell through the summer, but with the kids back in school and cooler air outside, my creative desires are back in full force. In honor of my favorite season I will dedicate the next twelve days to painting every day. That means twelve new pastel painting to share with you every day until Autumn has arrived! It's always a big task for me to stay motivated and challenges are a good way to keep me focused.

Will you follow along? You can find me on FACEBOOK where I will post the new painting every day. And check back to the blog when I upload them all to this post. I love links and sharing, so go ahead and share my pictures on your favorite social media network...just remember to link back to this site! Thank you for following me on this journey. I'm so happy to have you along again!

*ETA* All Autumn paintings are now available as noted for SALE. These all come unframed and range in price from $100 to $270 plus shipping. I can take credit card payments through PayPal. Thank you for your continued support!

  1. Your painting of the red-haired woman is amazing! Painting with water colors is a hard thing to do, but you've pulled it off wonderfully. Love the shadows in her face.

    1. Oh, Thank you so much! What a compliment! That is a painting of me...I figured if I could paint a self portrait...well, then, I'm half way there to being a professional! ;)

    1. How are you Laura! I am finally, after a few years, feeling sentimental about Belgium! I got the first painting into a juried show and the second one has been accepted for a fundraiser and I think the third one is sold to the Weyrauchs! - so that means I am now selling my art! Prices are still reasonable, so just email me! mylifewithmonkeys@gmail.com

  6. I like mostly the ones with the Red Rock. And your self-portrait as well. You are a good encouragement for me, to go on a similar way, too. Thanks!
