Stormy seas

Living on the Gulf of Mexico has it's own special beauty
(now that hurricane Matthew has come and gone).
I love watching the scores of birds fluttering above the water hoping for a glimpse
of dinner.

This was another one of the acrylic dumps I do
and then added the birds and called it done.

This closeup shows how happy accidents happen.  I had hoped the purple
would spread throughout but no, it settled.  Once it dried, I liked the added interest of the 
purple pool.

The past three weeks we spent some time on the road in search of fall foliage'  
We headed north through the Great Smoky Mtns all the way to Saratoga Springs, NY.
We covered 13 states and saw all sorts of spectacular color.  It truly was a feast for our eyes 
as each area has it's own "color personality".

So, this is my fall impression.  This was one layer of gold acrylic paint,  I added leaves and different colors until it was "done".  A week later I added a last glaze of a gold color to tone down the original gold.  Now maybe it is too dark but I can't go back.  
It must be done.
Hope those of you living in the "northern climes" are enjoying your beautiful surroundings.
We sure did.
Happy PPF!

Back after a long hiatus.
This pattern caught my eye.  Such clean, simple lines, I am sure I will use it again somewhere
in my art.  
It is so good to see Laura's boys are blooming in that "warm" Saskatchewan sun.
