Autumn is on its way out...

The days are certainly getting colder.  There is a cool nip in the air and the leaves are slowly disappearing from the trees.  Here is a painting that I finished just over a week ago.  These gorgeous leaves were just outside my kitchen window, just off the deck and I absolutely loved the way the sun caught the reds, golds and yellows.  I hope you enjoy.

I have listed this painting for sale on Artfire, here is the link if you'd like to check it out

With the falling of leaves ventures in Old Man Winter, and thoughts of Christmas preparations.  And it got me to thinking about getting those Christmas cards out early this year (ahem...that would be a far cry better than other years when they were hand delivered, one year know who you are...sorry!)

I found this website, Vistaprint, and they offer 10 free Holiday cards.  What's the catch?  Well, it actually looks legit!  I went through the entire process as a guest.  I uploaded an image of my own for the front of the card (being an artist, thought it would be nice to have my own artwork there).  No problems with the upload.   On the left hand margin, I noticed a $2.49 I was to be charged for an upload fee.  As I went through the process of options available, including color photo on the inside of the card (black and white photo was free, but color photo was an additional $2.49) I could change my message, too.  I was offered matching envelopes for $7.99 and matching mugs, notebooks, pens, none of which I chose, though I did think they looked pretty cool.  As long as I did not order the extras, my bill stayed at the original $2.49 and I didn't even have to pay that if I chose one of Vistaprint's images.  Then there was shipping, which was a pretty standard rate.

  1. Our leaves are pretty much fallen now … with the exception of a few of the stubborn standards. Your painting captures the memory of their clinging transformation beautifully!
