Last of Fall

I've been working on this painting over the past week. I love how vibrant the leaves are during the fall, so it's sad whenever they're gone. But that also means that winter is just around the corner! It already snowed (or flurried) last week in Minneapolis, can you believe that?! I can't remember the last time I took out my acrylic paints and I forgot how much fun it is to work in this medium. I especially love how messy my palette gets after I'm done painting.

Did you do anything fun over the weekend?

Thanks, Enthel for the pictures!

Extreme Fall + what I've been up to

Can you believe October is almost coming to an end? The days are getting shorter, temperatures are lower, and just about all the leaves have fallen off the trees. My 4-year-old brother calls this time of year 'extreme fall'. Isn't that cute? Even though I'm not a huge fan of the cold (which is actually considered warm in Minnesota!), I love that this weather calls for things like riding boots, cozy scarves, and, most importantly, pumpkin pie!!

Ok..so you were probably also wondering, "Corynn, where have you been for the past 2 months?! Whatever happened to the bird series?" It will completed, I promise! I've just been really occupied with schoolwork lately. But it will come soon, promise! In the meantime, if you'd like to see some art projects I'm working on for school, you can follow me here.

I hope you are enjoying the weather where you live!
