ARTmonday: 20 Autumnal Artworks

I feel like fall just started, but really we’re fast heading into winter, with a few frigid days already behind us. The leaves too, are almost gone. The spectacular array of golds, reds, and oranges continue to amaze, despite having spent every single one of my autumns in a four-season zone. Even driving the kids to and from school is made better by the autumnal artwork outside my windshield.

I remember, though when I took the fall foliage for granted. (Gasp.) Obviously I didn’t think much about the pretty color leaves growing up in Connecticut. Sure, I pressed brilliant red leaves between sheets of waxed paper, and probably made leaf turkeys, too, but beyond that, didn’t give fall foliage a thought. Until college.

At Connecticut College, one of my closest friends, Jessica Biales (I’ve previously blogged about her children’s artwork and stunning gold jewelry), went cuckoo over the changing leaves. She would exclaim and effuse about their beauty, leaving me as baffled as my kids probably are when I point out the amazing leaf colors along the Charles River. She wasn’t from a tropical clime.

Rather, Jessica is a New York City girl through and through, with a deep appreciation for the autumn foliage that wasn’t quite as vibrant out her bedroom window along the East River, or in Central Park. I get it now. I guess good things do come with age.

Today’s roundup features 20 autumnal artworks, from an acrylic of golden birches to a desert landscape photo to Central Park in fall, seen from Columbus Circle. There’s also a  homey kitchen, plus fall harvest still lifes, and an abstract or two in perfect fall hues. I also pulled together a similar collection for the blog on Matouk, which I’ll link to when it goes up. Enjoy not just these autumnal artworks, but the real art of autumn outside your windows.

ARTmonday: Pools in Art

When we’re in Florida, I get to stare out at a pool when I work all day, until my son finally gets me to abandon my computer and venture in. (Mainly so I can throw the football with him. Yes, I can throw and catch a football.) At 92 degrees, it was bath-like and blissful. It’s funny, because until recently, my kids had only been swimming in outdoor pools a couple of times. Now, it’s such a huge treat having one right outside our door a few weeks a year. The condo complex has a bit of a retro feel too. Not exactly Miami Deco, or David Hockney mid-century modern, but  Here are 20 artworks with pools, starting with the classic Hockney.

ARTmonday: 23 Bird Artworks

Since I can’t stop looking at the gorgeous trees around here—yellow, red, orange—they’re so autumn perfect, I thought I’d share the little creatures who hang out in them.  I had a bird as a pet growing up. He was a beautiful gray cockatiel with a yellow head and perfect persimmon circles on his cheeks. He imitated the call of a whippoorwill and also whistled  that, “Hey you’re sexy, babe” whistle, which was pretty humorous.

ARTmonday: 25 Mountains + Icebergs

I’ve been sorting though my  art b0ard on Pinterest because it is overflowing with over 1300 pins. I already have separate boards for abstracts, sculptures & installations, nudes (though I need to pull this down because I keep getting warnings), female figures, and photography, but now I need to subcategorize even more, so I’ve created landscapes, and will probably move on to still lives and portraits. I’ve noticed I have an abundance of contemporary artwork, especially illustration, picturing mountains and icebergs. This is hardly a surprise, given the current craze for all things “geo” (triangles, facets, polyhedrosn,etc.). They’re appealing, and season appropriate, so here you go.
