inspiration monday




we've been treated to some "fall weather" here in florida, and it inspired me to create this little doodle of some of my favorite autumn things! i decided to make a little video, and of course ran into some editing issues (which is videography speak for "i forgot to press the 'record' button when i was painting the first part"!!!), so it's rather short.....

i hope that this gorgeous weather inspires you to put on some cozy socks and your favorite sweater, so you can go outside and rake some of those fall leaves into a big pile....and jump in it! then come on inside for a nice bowl of warm soup, a mug of apple cider.....and maybe a piece of pumpkin pie for dessert!!

you can watch this video in larger format here

You're totally inspiring. I wish my art items looked somewhere NEAR as professional as yours!! :)

Happy Monday!

Martha Lever said...

SO SO cute. You need to put all this cute little drawings in a book so you can sit back and look at them over and over!

Jancalligrapher said...

That was so fun. I love watching you paint. Thanks for sharing.

Marie aka Grams aka Gramarme said...

This is absolutely charming. You seem so fluent and fluid in your art, it's a joy.

when i was watching your video, my 2 year old son asked what's that mama? i became the narrator. he loves colored pencils so he kept watching what you were doing (so was i). thank you for some monday goodness.

Sue K said...

I agree with Martha....these are so cute!! Maybe some cards to sell???? You could print them out and they would be so darned cute!! I must admit, I copied your Onion ring/french fry one and sent it to my Mom....she loved it!!! You have such cute ideas and I think they would sell big time. Even printed out and put behind a mat board.
Thanks for the comments on my Calligraphy post. Having tons of fun with it and I am learning so much! Have a good one...keep those doodles coming!!

Hugs,
Lisa :)
