Members of Montgomery Art Association come from all walks of life and their artworks and creative processes reflect this wonderful variety. In this blog, we invite you to enjoy a selection of pieces that explore the theme of Fall. Scroll down to enjoy a lovely array of ideas!

Jean Fin, "Purple Dream" (18x20” acrylic on canvas). This was one of my first attempts to paint more than one blossom.

Maria-Elena Lazarte, "Purple African Violets" (oil painting on linen panel 5x7”). I love to paint flowers and gardening. I have different colors of the African violets growing in my home and this one of them.

Marti Wells, "Enchanted Autumn" (4x8" watercolor). I put down some colors I liked. With a wet brush I shaped the trees.

Martina Sestakova"What Is Best for You" (Acrylic on yupo 10x8"). This painting is a visual meditation on our best interest in terms of our mental and physical health. Being aware of keeps us going and brings us joy. Enjoy this vibrant piece!

Christopher Hoppe (oil on canvas 24x36"). My perspective of looking up at really tall trees laying on the forest ground during fall.

Judith Levine, "Cloud Walker" (9x12" watercolor on paper). I didn't really have a vision other than a figure when I started, just soaked my paper and began adding paints. And then, suddenly, it was there and it felt right.

Amelia De Silva, "Iris" (oil on canvas 8x11"). Irises are the flowers of my childhood. My mom`s garden was filled with the purple ones. Love them for their magnificent colors, tonality and intriguingly shaped petals..

Jennifer Crouch“Grapes I” (7x9" oil on paper). Purple is my favorite color so I love that this simple, loose study allowed me to use so many variations of the color.
