Autumn Pretties

Yep, I’m feeling better than I was during my last post.

And then I had only three days of school this week and now its already the weekend again.  Say what?! Pretty awesome. I feel like I don’t even deserve the weekend, but I’m not complaining.

So last week I started a new drawing with this..

Then I played around with it on Pixelmator and created this.

I am a fan of asymmetry, so I prefer the original drawing, but I’m happy with both of them. And both are available at my shop. For instance…

And since then, I’ve been adding to the original flower.  Here is the work in progress ..

I also wanted to share a pumpkin. Because there are a lot of pumpkins going on in my life right now…

And speaking of pumpkins. Here are my 1st graders’ finished pumpkins (I showed an in-process photo a bit ago). They are so adorable! (Click on the image to make it bigger.)

They are hanging up next to some kindergarten fall trees. The fall trees have finger-painted leaves.  Lots of teachers have told me how much they love the pumpkins. You know, that really means a lot to an art teacher–complimenting students’ artwork.  So, if you have the thought, you should tell them (and of course that goes with any compliment–if you think it, you should say it).

My 6th graders are also working on some beautiful Southwest Landscapes in chalk pastel. Once I upload some photos I will have to share.

So much wonderful eye candy in this post.   Here is one more, by an illustrator I like named Tegan White.  It’s called “The Last Acorn of Autumn.”

Cheers.

  1. I like your drawings. You should draw something gender-neutral or masculine so that I can get a new phone and buy a phone-case with your art on it. I like the squirrel and chipmunk drawing too. It’s funny.

  2. Wow. Buying a phone-case with your art would be AWESOME!!
    And I love your students’ art!
    And your pumpkin is amazing….. as is that elaborate flower picture!

    And about complimenting…. I’m going to blog about that, too…. how important it is. Mm.
