Fall is here

 Where we are in Michigan, we have gone from summer to fall. Earlier this week it was in the 80s. Today it barley made 50. The leaves have not been changing as they normally do and the rain and wind have already knocked a lot off. 

It is good weather to stay in and create! This week I was working on mixed media canvas ornaments. Here is a sampling of them. I have more blank canvases arriving tomorrow so hope to get even more done. 

We had dinner with friends last weekend, and she bought pumpkins for all of us to carve. I went with an art  theme -- The Scream. 

Some of the changes happening to the trees on our street. 

Adding this to PaintPartyfriday! Please visit all of the wonderful and inspiring artists who post there. 

Thank you for visiting and for your kind words. I wish everyone a safe and healthy weekend! 


  1. Lovely canvas tags! Good job on the Scream pumpkin.

  2. Oh Jean your hand painted canvases look amazing hung in the tree what a fabulous way to display your artwork in miniature. I hope your next batch arrive soon so you can work on them soon.
    Looks like you had fun with friends carving pumpkins together.
    Happy PPF Tracey x

  3. Lovely art Jean, those canvases are beautiful. And I love the scream, well done! It's very much autumn here, with mist covering the ground. Looks pretty, but it's very chilly! Hugs, Valerie

  4. beautiful ornaments Jean. Love your Scream pumpkin!
    Yes, our weather has been the same here in NE PA, but as it's just started to get cold (which would normally begin in the beginning of October) I can accept it and am grateful for the extra weeks of warmth.

  5. The little ornaments are lovely, what a great idea.

  6. Oh I love all the mini art work you did for the Holiday! ~ Wonderful and so creative hanging on the real tree ~ Xo
