Colorscape: Harvest

Promise of Living V

I’m living in Texas right now, and the weather has finally started feeling a tiny bit like fall.  It’s in the low 70’s right now and I’m wearing a sweater (because I can).  They started putting pumpkins outside of grocery stores while we lathered sunblock on our bare arms and legs…  but oh well.  I really love warm weather, so no complaints here.   But I will admit it is nice to feel the change (even if I can’t see it because there are no leaves here to change!)  So, in the spirit of fall, I wanted to post a colorscape full of those beautiful harvesty colors.  I am so inspired by the lush apple greens, golden tone yellows, and the lovely pops of cool grays.  I find that adding an accent that doesn’t quite fit in the color scheme can add so much dimension and live to a piece of artwork of design.  In this case, the warm, muted color, pallet is enhanced even more because of the cool grays and little hints of vibrant blue-green.  So brilliant.  So lovely.

This painting, “Promise of Living V” was done by the very talented Donna Walker.  I am so in love with the thick pallet knife strokes and the way she uses shapes to indicate the landscape… and of course, the colors are inspired.  To see more of her work check out her website!

Most days you can find me, in the studio with my little girls, speckled in oil paint (drinking too much coffee), creating artwork for collectors around the world and collaborating with select brands. Check out my artwork on
