Autumn Colors

One of the things I love most about living in upstate New York is fall.  Not the kind our economy is taking but the season of the year.  I am not sure I could live where there are not four distinct seasons.  I have tons of photos of autumn colors.  Now I have a small piece of art.

I had this tag sitting around the house.  I had been saving it to make it into a small piece of art.  I had in mind that I would gesso the tag to get rid of the “Steve & Barry’s” part of it and then I would use a stiff stipple brush to make leaves in all the gorgeous colors on it.  Well, the gesso part went well.  The stippling, not so much.  I started with the lightest color – yellow – and could not get what I was envisioning.

Take two.  I decided that I would use the colors I had out – yellow, orange, cranberry, green and espresso – to color the tag.  I did direct from ink pad to paper, or tag in this case, and here is the end product.  Each side is unique but this is my favorite side.
