Autumn's Rainbows - Paintings

I think of myself as a photographer who likes to pick up the paint brush occasionally.  The urge to dabble in paint takes over the call of the camera for a time.

And this usually happens around Autumn, just as the leaves begin to give us a wonderful display of reds, oranges, and yellows.  A visual delight for everyone.

Every autumn all the trees around our house lose their leaves in the most beautiful display of colour and light, and every leaf becomes an artwork of its own.

The leaves dance and swirl in the wind on their journey to the earth.  They become a carpet of colour and toys for our cats to indulge in.

It’s my favourite season and I wanted to give these wee souls of the trees a new life in these paintings.
