Worth Repeating and Mum studies

Look in my left side bar and click on "Acorn Pumpkins"  A tutorial will come up so that you can make these:
Into these:
I have just gathered some more Acorns from the Live Oak Trees that grow in the neighbors yard and sprinkles the edge of my lawn with them.  I love fall and colored leaves and Acorns.    And here is some of my still life arrangements that I took from today and plan to draw and paint the subject matter.

 I think that this would make a nice card.
 I cannot wait to see what I can do when painting this arrangement.
 The little bottle is an antique medicine bottle. I gather feathers because I collect them and I also use them in my crafting e.g. drawings of ladies in feathered hats, using the real tiny plush feathers.
This photo I enhanced the color to bring out the vividness of the orange color. 
Another that would make a nice greeting card. 
the antique blue-green of the tiny medicine bottle.

I love creating vignettes and still life arrangements.  I hope you checked out the little pumpkin tutorial from 2 fall seasons ago and that you are inspired to make some fall studies from nature of your own.  Thanks for coming!
