Colors of Autumn

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
A. Camus
Autumn is officially here but my question is.....where did summer go?

"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree."
E. Bronte
Autumn is one of my favorite seasons but.........
"In summer, the song sings itself."
W.C. Williams
I don´t know if I am ready to say goodbye to days like this.....

or this one either.


"A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing and the lawn mower is broken."
J. Dent
Pull up a chair and enjoy the summer sun. Isn´t this the perfect place to sit and watch the leaves turn?



Go take a walk in a lush, summer forest.

Eventually.....the days will grow cooler and the leaves will begin to fall.
Collect some fallen leaves and paint the underside with watercolor.




Press the painted leaf onto watercolor paper.


It is a fun and easy instant Postcard.
"Autumn, the year´s last, loveliest smile."
W.C. Bryant
Autumn´s Glory is the theme at Sunday Postcard Art this week,,,,go have a look.

So Beautiful! You make me want to start painting again! Just fear I'll be so disappointed )-:

Oh Cynnie! If it weren't dark already, I would run outside and see if I could find a leaf to paint! I've used a leaf with ink before, but never with watercolors!

BTW....your curled leaf is just glorious!
