WIP . . . 2 colorful Trees; Fountain; Lamp Light

 Putting together everything in one picture: Prismacolor Pencils and Pastels. Not sure where I'm going with this but the colors are so beautiful here now. The leaves are either red, orange or gold. . . may just start over.

Thanks so much Kristin and Eva for Paint Party Friday, it keeps me on my toes.  The wonderful artists show me so many different worlds and supplies.  Thanks so much for all your comments. See you on Paint Party Friday.

 Some of the pretty trees this week.
 Finally, see the pretty trees.
 Few clouds off and on.
 Of course the squirrels are busy eating and

House across the street and The trees finally turned Beautiful.

 House across the street and barn.
 I used Prismacolor pencils . . and pastels. House in the country with the Picket Fence. The gold tree is the spark for my photography this week. 

Thank you Kristin and Eva and all of you that make Paint Party Friday the great site that it is. Comments are helpful and appreciated. The Artists have ideas, new art supplies to try and how to use them. Wonderful learning site.  Be sure to check them all out.

 Our trees finally turned. . .Reds and Pinks and Golds.

Boat in Water with Rainbow overhead

 Rainbow over Boat in the Water. .Birds and Trees. .Sand. I used Pastels and Prismacolor Pencils. You can see what I miss.  Thank you Eva and Kristin for Paint Party Friday where we all have a chance to share our Art and share our passion. The most interesting part of PPF is the wonderful mixture of art and talent. Plus we find out about new art products on the market and how to use them.
EDIT:  I didn't realize that I added the Palm (where I used to live) and then a regular Tree (where I now live). Hummmm!

Thank you so much for your comments, suggestions and best wishes. I appreciate each and every one of you.
 The moon in the trees last night. . . 78 percent full.
 Squirrel 'on the fence' in the backyard.
 Burying nuts for winter, however, this one decided to have Breakfast.
 Pasture is just over the fence.
 Did you get a good picture. . .
Trees with a 'few' reds but mostly Gold this fall.
 Fantastic sunset last evening.
The most violent storms leave the brightest and longest rainbows. Keep the Faith. Hang in there. The clouds will pass.  Sometimes when things are falling apart they may actually be falling into Place.  ~ Terry Alex

Purple Flowers

Prismacolor pencils, Retractable Sharpie and Pastels. 
Thank you Kristin and Eva for allowing us to to show our works and receive comments. This is a fun, learning place, that everyone can either participate and make comments, or just enjoy all the teachers and artists here at Paint Party Friday.

Thank you so much for your comments, your patience and caring. The condo in FL is finally sold to someone I hope comes to love it as much as I did. 

All of the paperwork is finished and I should be able to get back to painting, sewing and crocheting.

Mountains, Cabin, Deer and trees

I used pastels and Prismacolor Pencils. I think, perhaps, some of the art painters on PBS are beginning to take in my brain somewhere.  I have been so busy. . .FL Condo sold. . .just finishing paperwork. So much associated with that. Just finished my absentee ballot also. . .now to the Notary and two things done. Whew. it's has been some 2 weeks. . .why I've been missing. Oh Happy Dayz for sure.
Thanks so much Kristin and Eva for allowing a place where artists can show their work and receive comments. This site and all the people here at Paint Party Friday is a Godsend to me.
 Thank you all of you who comment. I will certainly try to get around to as many as possible.
You never know what may come along with a fresh new start, so don't be sad when something is over. Start again.

Quilts on the line.

 Pastels and Prismacolor pencils. Quilts on the Line. One of those perfect days. Sorry, I was missing last week, I'm still unpacking. The Florida condo is fine, we didn't get badly hit in So. FL. Be sure and visit the artists websites and see what's going on in the Paint Party Friday world of art. See and learn new things.  Thank you Kristin and Eva for the chance to show our art and receive feedback. Thank you for all your comments and your patience. I really appreciate it.

 Poser Squirrel . .notice the leaves.
 Squirrel has his food. . .looking for a place to bury it?
 There he goes. . toward the back yard.
 Ok, what's with this. . .brown leaves, I thought 
fall leaves would give us beautiful colors
before going naked. Naked trees are not pretty.
 They sure are falling off the trees and not giving any color?
Always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you. ~ Arnold Palmer
