New Paintings, Abundance and Gratitude


The weather is changing rapidly now, I've managed to capture the glorious red leaves on my garden wall before they began to fall.


Thankyou so much for helping me with my 'naming the girl' in my last post. It was one of the later suggestions on Facebook that felt so right, it's the name 'Fawn'. She looks quite deerlike I think, don't you? :)

You might remember I bought some canvas boards a while ago and started by collaging them with background layers but the summer became so very busy I had no time to continue with them, that is until now.

Abundance, 7 x 5 ins

This one is called 'Abundance' and her garden is full of red berries and copper tinted leaves. The fruits are ripe and the sun squeezes out its last warm rays.

Gratitude, 7 x 5ins.

This painting is called 'Gratitude'. Her heart thrives on beauty and love and she keeps safe her loving essence that pours gratitude quietly from her eyes.

I'm going to list both these new paintings in my Etsy shop soon but if you're interested in buying them before I do, please click here to email me. Each one will be £25, (that's approx. $40) and if you buy from me directly before they're listed, there will be no shipping costs for you! :)


Enjoy the warm colours while they're still here! :)

Oh, what gorgeous fall colors in your nature shots and your beautiful paintings!! They both look so serene. And the colors are amazing!! We are only now getting the first few leaves changing color, but the big fall colors don't arrive here until November! xoxo Silke

How beautiful, dear Jessie....
It is so apparent that you create with such love in your heart. Gorgeous work....

I am very sorry to know of the troubles in the past year...lots of melancholy in our neck of the woods as well...
Yes, the quote is a help and an inspiration, seemed quite fitting for me as well, and I am always happy when a blog friend can be inspired or soothed.
Thank you so very much... :)
Sending a big hug across the pond...

They are beautiful, Jess! I'm at awe at how brave you are with colors. I wish I could have just a tiny bit of that, but I guess I'm too much of a chicken. LOL. :D
