Mums and Pumpkins

> Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax and enjoy a cup of tea while I share the inspirations behind my paintings with you. I am participating with Pink Saturday 's Autumn post this week and would love to share with you pumpkin and Mum inspirations for an Autumn Welcome sign I am painting for a friend.

We are having beautiful Fall weather in Southern California - cool nights and glorious warm and sunny days with a hint of Autumn in the air. Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, in the garden for Spiced Apple tea and look for pumpkins and Mums to paint.

Bentley is already busy looking Here . . There . . . Everywhere.

Finding inspiration . . . .

Mums waiting to be planted.

I love this pumpkin planter as it can be used from year to year.

Butterfly and bird garden ornaments add a touch of color and whimsy to the garden.
"In the day you will make your plant to grow, and in the morning you will
make your seed to flourish" Isaiah 17:11

Fall herbs planted in a little blue pot.

I love the white pumpkins purchased at the local Farmer's Market. We support our local farmers as often as we can.

Here . . . . There . . . .

Everywhere . . . . .

Mums, pumpkins and my vintage bicycle were the inspirations for my painting.
