Mums for Sale


Mums for Sale

It's growing colder and colder here in NC .... we're expecting a heavy frost tonight. These mums, displayed for sale and sketched from a photo of one of my favorite nurseries, won't be as bright by next week.

Fall sure has come and is going mighty fast!

Hi
I like this scene and all your use of colors...

It is damp here, today, but not particularly cold. About 60 degrees and should get up in the 70's. Most of the leaves are still green...greener than in the summer...however the sumac is beginning to change to some reds...the only color we get here.

I love your drawing!

Oh Lin, this is beautifully painted-the colors, the perspective, just everything!!

Should I tell you that it is 80 degrees today and I am sweating. But I love it.

Nice, loose sketch, Lin! Feels like fall.

Terri said...

Lin the depth you created within this is just fantastic. Your perspective and the wonderful shading makes it really come alive. Just lovely. :o)

Oh what a lovely and loose sketch -- you are really getting this down pat. And nice to see the bright colors on this cold day.
Another beautiful painting!
Hugs,
Lorraine
(who has finally finished her 18 x 22 art quilt and is going to the exchange tomorrow with fear and trepidation. Will post both what I made and what I received in next couple of days.

Lovely colors! And I like that you don't have so much lines, very good.

Lovely,Lin! I can almost imagine walking down through these rows of Mums and choosing some for a huge bouquet. Love the us of vivid colours.

What a lovely painting! I like the foreground detail and bright colors and the softer background (good aerial perspective). We're having really warm and dry and windy weather in the upper 70s. We call it earthquake weather or fire weather, since our biggest natural disasters seem to happen in this kind of weather. I'm ready for chill and rain...it's like too much dessert, having all this sunshine--wrong season!
