Autumn Sunrise

Near our home in Olympia, there is a place called Nisqually
Wildlife Refuge.  It is such a lovely place to take a walk on 
colorful autumn day. 

This painting was inspired by several pictures I took as we
strolled along the rustic wooden walkways...

Autumn Sunrise
The rich fall colors, light beams filtering through the trees and
falling onto the forest floor, the sight and sounds of a glistening
water fall, even the fallen trees, altogether they add so much to
the deliciously warm sunrise.
All we need now is to hear birds singing their praise, and
forest creatures scampering about on this new day...

A place to walk with your children and grandchildren and to
 lookat the wonderful wildlife.

John and David look at a Blue Heron with grandpa....

Autumn is such a beautiful time of the year, all the colors
blend together in the cool crisp air...

I have printed my painting onto feather-edged cards and they
are available at my etsy shop. I have made available single cards,
sets of five, or sets of ten. They would make a great gift for
someone or use them yourself.

Notice the glitter on the water just gives it that little
sparkling touch.


  1. Beautiful work! thank you for the lovely giveaway.

  2. I love your cards! And Autumn does inspire us to create and to bring out that artsy person we all have within us.

  4. They are beautiful! I bought a paint set years ago, but never tried...I think I would love painting although I don't have talent, I do love the feeling paintings can inspire.

  5. Congratulations on your new blog. Once when I was visiting my sister Elaine I believe I met one of your granddaughters and also bought some lovely mountain cards from their shop. You do have lovely decor and it inspired me to get a vase out of the cupboard and decorate with it for fall! Thanks!

  6. How beautiful! It reminds me of a creek in the woods we used to have!
