Now, if you know me even a little then you probably know that oranges, browns, rusts, and quite often, yellow too are not on my preferred palette of colour choices. Not that I can't appreciate them ... just that they aren't my favourites. :-/ This challenge made me turn up my nose.
I didn't cry though -- I'm a BIG girl artist don't you know! So I pulled up those big girl panties and walker-hobbled over to sit down at the desk! I grabbed a book of vintage images and browsed to see what I might find (this time it was the Birds and Nature book) and saw something that, while not conventionally Fall oriented, had the Fall colours. YES it just might work!
And so it did!
Autumn is a second Spring
When every leaf becomes a flower.
This is one of the times I so wish we had a better camera as it just wasn't possible to get a perfect colour match from either of the cameras used today.
Oh! My grandson, Max, who happened to be running by and glanced into our bedroom, did a "Hey now!" when he spotted it ... he was very impressed with his Mimi's creation. :::beam:::
