Painting Pumpkins and Fall Flowers

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 the inspirations for my art.   Our "heat wave" in Southern California finally broke and we are having lovely Fall like weather and everyone is now in the mood to get an early start  in decorating and planting.

Bentley, my Studio Assistant, is waiting for you so he can show you some of the pumpkins we bought at Roger's Gardens last week.











Our pumpkins decorate the garden until the week before Thanksgiving and then we donate them to the food bank and also use them to decorate our church hall for Thanksgiving dinner for those in need.






I like to add warmth to the kitchen patio in the Fall by changing colors and accessories to yellows, oranges and gold.


The whimsical Owl pillow is co cute that I am thinking about painting a whimsical Owl next week - if I do we can have an art 101 lesson.  Owls are so popular and seems like they are in every store this year.





                              Love - love the colors of the Gerber daisies in the little pot.


I ended up painting little 5x5 canvases to tuck around our garden for a little "Art in the Garden".














Thank you for stopping by.  I sincerely appreciate  your visits, e-mails, comments and those of you who follow my blog.  I hope to be back next week and we will paint a whimsical Owl together.

Have a lovely week.  Blessings, Erin

Wow, you have everything decorated so prettily for Fall. Your paintings look cute displayed in your garden. The bike looks like the one I had when I was a kid. I still have it in the basement, but at some point over the years either my husband or son took it all apart! I don't know why they would have done that.

Your garden is so beautiful. Love the old bike and all of the fall colors. Bentley is so adorable. Everything is arranged so nice and your paintings are great. I seemed to have lost my creativity right now. Hoping Autumn inspires me again.
