"Birches II" textured acrylic metallic gold fall painting

Last night I watched a movie called "Seraphine" about a French painter Seraphine Louis. I appreciated this movie so much! We all have our struggles in life and hurdles to jump. But sometimes we lose track of who we really are and do not prioritize to make our dream come true. And most importantly - we forget how lucky we are to be able to do as much as we do in one day. Simple things I take for granted - like washing machine, dishwasher - help so much in every day life, especially if one has little kids around.

Simple life, Aspen gold metallic texture acrylic painting

I am preparing for the show in December and this is one of the bigger paintings I will bring to the show.  - the painting is 3X4 ft! 
I love painting aspens. I focus on the tree trunks and make the background more abstract. There is a lot of texture in my paintings - but in aspen paintings there seems to be even more texture. 

"Burst of Color"

I dislike clutter, in my surroundings and in my life. This year has been all about simplifying and reducing the clutter. We are pretty much done renovating our old home and it is a wonderful and warm place to live. I love the craftsmanship and quality of work done on the wood details. The stairs and floors are amazing. You cannot find planks that long today! Sure - there are no right angles in our home anywhere :) but it has warmth and beauty one cannot find in most contemporary built homes.

Botanical garden

Went to the botanical garden today and really enjoyed walking through it - especially the Japanese garden. Brought back memories from the time we lived there for a few months. There is a huge pond and some healthy looking koi - hungry and big too :). I studied them for a while - I have been meaning to paint them for awhile now. Such bright colors - combined with water reflections - it is going to be a challenge. I am looking forward to painting more....
