Fall Leaves and Winter Holidays!

I love walking and viewing all the different colors, types, and shapes of fall leaves. It reminds me of walking along a sandy beach, looking for unique sea shells…

While I am enjoying fall and not ready for winter yet, I am being reminded that the December holiday season is just around the corner. Here are two pieces from the Wintertime series~Read the story behind their creation in these earlier posts, In the Studio~Holiday Inspirations and  In the Studio~Winter Series.
