Amaryllis watercolor. I like the deep, red hues. Started with a dark blue underpainting in the shadow area. May end up with 10 glaze layers!

I am beginning an art series of autumn trees and leaves. I love the vibrant colors! It will include various landscapes, closeups, and media. Here are my first three: acrylic dogwood leaves, autumn trees reflected in a pond (watercolor), and closeup of dogwood leaves (watercolor). I want viewers to be inspired by the changing colors of nature and have different moods evoked: serenity, vibrancy, immediacy, connection. What do you see? #autumn #autumnleaves #autumnleaves🍂 #autumnleaves🍁 #colorful #coloredleaves #coloredleaves🍁 #coloredleaves🍁🍂 #watercolor #watercolorpainting #watercolorart #acrylicpainting #naturalbeauty

“Autumn Dogwood Leaves” 2020, 8”x10”, acrylic. US$95.

Sometimes I get a little abstract and less realistic. I like how this gives a sense of leaves gently blowing in the wind, almost like chimes!

Art can be therapy.
.
Three years ago, I was taking photos for painting at Greenville (SC) Falls Park when I slipped on wet rocks, smashing down on my knees, breaking my left wrist, and knocking out one front tooth and root plus breaking two others.
.
Recently, I came across those photos and felt compelled to paint the scene as a way to heal my psyche. Have you ever made an art piece to heal a wound? #arttherapy #arttherapyheals #greenvillefallspark #greenvillefalls #acrylicpainting #acrylicart #waterfalls #autumnleaves #falltrees #artistsoninstagram (at Falls Park Greenville SC)

Sold this mini-painting yesterday and it turned into a commission for two landscapes!

It has been a rainy day, so it seemed suitable to work on a watercolor painting of some of the mushrooms/fungi that have been popping up in the lawns of the homes I pass on my daily walk. These lovely orange darlings were grouped around the base of an oak tree surrounded by grass and pine straw. The blueness of my background almost strikes me as a watery pond with lily pads!

Much of my artwork juxtaposes the eternal with the ephemeral—landscapes that last a longtime and flowers and fungi@that only last a few days. Life is like that—both eternal and short-lived.
