Fall and spring are my favorite seasons. I'm hugely fond of California spring that starts in January and ends in July if we are lucky. 6 months of spring, can't do better than that. But fall is a bit sad, especially here in LA. Deciduous trees here are suffering a lot from the drought, so trees are either evergreen or half dead. It makes for a very sad fall!
My friends from all over the Northern Hemisphere began to post beautiful pictures of their backyards and gardens, and walks in parcs in beautiful red shades. I felt a little bit frustrated until I decided to actually enjoy it. I'm enjoying their beautiful fall... by painting watercolors from the photos. I was afraid it would be a bit dull, or awkward, but it's actually a very nice way to be with people I care for.
So here we are, first watercolor, with Deedeen bird in Switzerland. How about Canada and Oregon next?
