Memories of Autumn

Well, I managed to complete another post card for the SWAP. It is 4" x 6" and is watercolor pencil on watercolor paper. This one is mostly out of my head from what I remember from a watercolor painting I saw on a calendar once and had in my art room sometime in the 1970's. I loved the artist's work - he(?) painted landscapes of New England - usually with a lot of field stone fences and stark barns and buildings. If anyone remembers who this artist might be - please comment.

Now thats what I call artistic - creating a piece from memory. Gorgeous warm colours - we need right now with all the frost and ice on the ground.

Absolutely beautiful, Barb. I always love rural scenes like this one.

Joan - the picture I remember was one that I had for students to use as source for ideas and I saw it many times - my memories of this picture are pretty vivid.
We need some nice warm colors - I certainly agree. I do not care for this time of the year and look forward to spring!

Thanks, Sherry - I visited your blog - your parents are/were very handsome people. They are my age - your mother's dress, etc. bring back memories.
