Beautiful September in New Mexico with Fall Approaching

I just had to take a picture of these beautiful flowers in bloom while visiting my dear friend in Corrales this past week.  I love the fall in New Mexico as it is getting a bit chilly in the mornings though warming up to beautiful and pleasantly warm afternoons with gorgeous blue skies and everything green.  Just as I'm really enjoying the beauty of it all it seems the leaves start yellowing and dropping as winter arrives.  Just this week my pink lemonade honeysuckles in my backyard have dropped almost all of their leaves at the same time as it is in full bloom once again.  This has been a wonderful year in New Mexico with the return of the monsoons and bringing new life and reserves much needed.

Here is a picture of an original painting I call "Greening Up", it is an oil painting on 10"x8" wood panel and from my imagination/mind, not from photographs.

I was commissioned to paint a birdhouse for a friend so here are pictures of it after the final protective spray.  I sometimes still lack the confidence to paint from photos so this was a wonderful experience as I had to talk myself through the negative thoughts in the beginning of the process (the photo painting is the side of the birdhouse with the bridge with flowers and a house at the end).  I'm happy with the finished result and hope my friend loves it too (she was elated with the "bridge" side).
