9" x 12"
Arches 140#CP

The leaves are turning, the skies clearing and the temperatures are moving back to reasonable temperatures. Pumpkins and gourds are appearing everywhere I look ... and now, more than ever, is the season for berries.

I find berries on the hollies, on the dogwood, on the winterberry shrub, viburnum, elderberry, and wrapped in casings like this physallis ... and I love to see each of them.

Somehow apples taste better in the fall than any other time, and I look forward to their sweet crunch. And now, with cooler evenings, a hot cup of tea really makes everything cozy.

Here's to fall and harvests and apple and pumpkin pies! To oranges and golds and crimson! Let the color kaleidescope begin!

Gorgeous painting Lin. I love how you were able to get them perfectly rounded looking -- amazing quality. They look so real and the color, oh my! Everything I paint still looks flat. And the bit of blue so perfectly balances out the orange.
Just perfect!

Beautiful job!!! I love the contrast of color you have. Yes, fall is in the air. I've needed my jacket the last few days when I walk in the am. Enjoy!!
