Fall Unfurling

This is one of the paintings I have been working on this week. It only needs a few last finishing touches so maybe I will finish it this weekend - I hope so! The gorgeous colors of autumn are really inspiring me as they do every year. I have a hard time not painting autumn all year round - well, sometimes I just go for it anyway. But this time of year it is pretty much required and I am happy to oblige.

I've also been working on more little paintings with pencil and watercolor. One can really make art on the go with very little luggage - I carry a few bits of paper and a mechanical pencil w/ an eraser and I am ready to go! (I usually do the watercolors when I get home but I did sit at a restaurant early this week with my homemade travel it of Daniel Smith watercolors and got a lot done!) I was there for a drawing group and a man at the next table over was working on an amazing piece using just a number 2 pencil so the message is this : you don't need a lot of trappings to make art. All you need is the willingness to open yourself up and come to the page.
