Thank YOU so much for your most generous birthday wishes yesterday!! It was a fun day -- my techician made the most incredible chocolate triffle that would bring me out of my deathbed to eat!! LOL It was fabulous -- and hence, no painting of it! Licked that plate clean, I did! LOL And we had an incredible lunch!! Boy, I"m going to have to walk all the way home to lose the calories I indulged in yesterday! LOL

This landcape is based loosely on a photo I took during a plein air event last month and my wishing for fall colors! Right now, our foliage is muted yellows and coffee-browns -- little of he oranges and reds I see in so many flickr photos this time of year -- so I just HAD to make up m y own autumnal view .. until ours brightens.

We have another office birthday to celebrate today .. mercy, maybe I'll need to walk all the way to New York!!! LOL

Lin, you are such an inspiration and I've learned so much from you and your work. I'm passing on an award to you which you can pick up at my blog. Keep on creating your outstanding art!

I'm glad I don't have to walk off those calories. It sounds like you had a good day. Love the colors you added to the scene...artistic license is ours to use. Lovely job!!!

Nice to see you in happy mood. :)
Hope you are feeling better!

Wonderful landscape... it seems to me that you developed your style in painting skies and bushes... always working perfect. A big reach for an artist I think. Bravo!
