It's Halloween, October 31 today. I haven't met with any fellow painters for our usual paint-outs since February. So I've painted some watercolors and gouache pieces from my photos taken close to home. We're still having warm days but it's feeling like fall. Last December I took a photo of some colorful liquidambar trees just south of my house. I used it for a recent "autumn feeling" gouache piece. This painting reminded me of the beginning of summer when I took a photo of a home decorated for July 4th in the block north for a holiday watercolor. These paintings were for the weekly prompts our wonderful and generous leader/organizer gives the Saturday group. Inspiring, and they keep us painting and connected.
