Little bits

Wanting to play with my new paint and testing on a variety of paper leads me to do a few ACEOs.
Of the 2 autumn fields minis, this one is my favorite. I prefer a bright sky with clouds rolling in just like so many fall days I spent picking apples and then baking pies, making applesauce and fritters.






This iris was done with Daniel Smith watercolors but not the amethyst genuine. I found it flat and even though it has a glimmer, it doesn't show when scanned or photographed.








I do love fall and really miss all the colorful changes that are abundant in the northeast or even midwest regions.






And believe it or not, I still have flowers blooming in pots on the deck. Even though it's cool at night the cosmos are hanging in and my little frog has relocated to the box on the deck rail. He's been in my flowers forever and seems to prefer second story dwelling. I bet he's what the birds are looking for when they stand on the rims and pluck up bunches of dirt. He's made it so far and I'm rooting for him. The birds can have all the acorns.
