Fall season,Jean Bernick

I always have to paint leaves in the fall.

Fall Leaves

Here are some leaves:
I've created a colouring book pages product alongside an internet marketing friend: 

and this autumn themed one is part of the series - drawn with a Sharpie, scanned in the computer, available to colour at will

I went ahead and coloured them in with MS Paint - it took a long time! I can't even imagine trying to do this with actual pencils/pens/markers.

Where I live the leaves are starting to turn and fall - I guess that's why they call if 'fall'

Pumpkins by Joan Tavolott

Sorry I don't get back here often enough. It is great to scroll through and see what everyone has been doing. I have done several autumn themed pieces lately. This is a farmstand just north of me that had a pumpkin display and a pumpkin field to be explored.

Important Person: my sweeetie

first of all, thanks so much for the invite to participate!

I did this portrait of my husband Jim who I think is a beautiful and wonderful and wise man in many ways and who has in 11 years made my life awesome by providing warmth and love in all ways and challenging me to grow as a person in important ways. I also admire his priciples and we also have fun collaborating on things, for fun and (sometimes) profit

i did this portrait which i don't think is 100% likeness and one reason is that he wasn't sitting for it, nor was i consulting a photo- i started drawing it freehand and only when he randomly walked by in front of me would i ask him to look at me for a bit so i could correct something - but by then the damage was done

Mainly the nose area is the mistake, especially near the brow ridge area

Important People, On their Wedding Day, Penny Stewart

Important people in my life: 
My daughter Gina and her husband Dan
On their wedding day. 
I only used black watercolor paint washes and the white is the paper. This was done for a study of values in only black and white for a DPW challenge. It was painted from a reference photo of my own family. 9x12 on 140# hot press paper. Comes with a white mat and backing board to fit into an 11x14 frame. For Sale. Gina is an artist, so I never presume to give her any of my artwork, LOL.
