Fall Harvest Inspirations

Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you inspirations for my paintings. I have been working on some little Fall Welcome signs to donate to a fall fund raiser.

The Fall harvest in Southern California repeated some beautiful heirloom pumpkins and gourds that can be found at Roger's Gardens. Let's take a look around at some of their beautiful pumpkin displays and look for inspirations for a Harvest Welcome sign. My mums and sunflowers are in full bloom in the garden and Bentley, my helpful Studio Assistant, will show you our our Fall flowers.

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
Galatians 6:7-9

Pots of Sunflowers waiting to be planted in the garden.

Finding inspiration . . . . .

Old goat cart filled with pumpkins at Roger's Gardens.
Beautiful bronze mums.

Here . . . . There . . . .

The carts of pumpkins, mums and sunflowers were the inspirations for the new fall paintings.

Everywhere . . . .

A different version - this time I put the pumpkins in the cart surrounded with the mums and painted the Sunflowers sitting in pot on the ground.

Beautiful pots planted with Fall colors at Roger's always inspire my art.

Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, comments and those who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.

Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin

Wow Erin, those beautiful Fall displays must have you inspired and painting non-stop! Your art is always so beautiful. Bentley blends perfectly with Fall colors too - now if only it would cool down here, we're still getting 90+ every day!!!

I've opened a booth with friend Vanessa at Suzanna's Antiques - come look on my blog - lots of pretty things which will hopefully sell!

Enjoy your lovely Autumn days.
Hugs - Mary

Oh my gosh - these photos are to die for- there is not a better season so full of color than the mixed palette of fall. You have captured it so so beautifully - what a fabulous post.

Hugs to that Bently boy~~
