Looking ahead

Here it is October already. Turn around once and it will be the winter holidays and then the new year before we know it. This is a view from the most southern tip of Hatteras Island, near where the ferry takes you to Ocracoke. I worked on this from an old photo of mine. This area is probably filled up with over sized beach houses and souvenir shops by now.

Lovely Fall colors, Ann! Can't believe Fall is here already. Like you said, turn once and then the next season.

I want to canoe up that stream with a pair of binoculars. Wonderful sense of place - so well done, as always.

Such nice depth to this one with a fuller color range. Can feel the landscape pulling me into it. Very nice.

The colours are fabulous in this. They excite yet soothe. Autumn is a season full of landscapes to be painted.

Your work is just gorgeous. Love the colors! Love the apples in a previous post too! :)

Very calm and beautiful piece. Love the banks, and how it goes in the far nearer to the horizon. :)
I am getting motivated to do some color pencil drawings too ^^

I have really enjoyed catching up on all your past blogs. Love the apple and flower work. The Autumn drawings are lovely too, colours and glimpses of your part of the world.
