Colorful Leaves and Yellow Cottage

 The colorful leaves (falling everywhere), and squirrels in the trees, gave me the idea to paint them. . .I used pastels, prismacolor pencils, and art pens.  I enjoyed making this one. . . yellow cottage, pond and pups.  More pictures at:

Thank you Kristin and Eva for a place to show, comment and learn new things.  Paint Party Friday is a most amazing place.

3-Story Yellow House has been decorated

This is a 3-story yellow house (pastels, pencils, pens). . .making all sorts of changes, additions, decor. . .Always Palm trees though. Fish pond, Clothes hanging on the line and, of course, Pups house.
Thank you Kristin and Eva for a fun learning experience to go to and comments every Paint Party Friday.  The videos, comments (thank you so much everyone), instruction and new ideas are amazing.

I didn't get around to every one this week, had a flood. I live (for the first time in my life) in an apt. complex. The dishwasher next door leaked into my apt.  Small downstairs. I had to take everything out of closets (one is a walk-in) and Pantry. Difficult to manage ALL WEEK going around things, galley kitchen made it more difficult. Still in a mess.
 Harvest Moon and clouds.
 Mid-court Fountain.
 Barn and 1920s house across the way.
 Fountain. . .colorful Trees and Lamp Light.
 Trees have so much color this year.
 I have enjoyed it. . .guess for the past several
years the colors have not been there.
I know I was disappointed last year NO colors at all.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for Paint Party Friday, keeps me doing what I love, learning from others, and making it fun besides.
Thank you for visiting this past week. I celebrated a 'big' birthday and didn't have a chance to visit all of you. I am so sorry.

I love when the horses do their thing.

 Notice the dust as he shakes it off. 
OK is the dustiest place I've lived so far.
