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!
Rosemary Behizadeh Yue, "Russet Grasses" (12x12” acrylic on canvas). Tressa Hummel, reference photo credit. Although the tree is still green, we can tell from the grasses that Fall is already here.
Maria-Elena Lazarte, "Autumn" (16x20” acrylics on canvas). This painting is one of my early paintings on acrylics. I did the setup for this painting dried hydrangeas and purple coneflowers, one of my favorite purple bottles and the tiny Pumpkin to represent Fall.
Anastasia Walsh, “Falling in Love” (paper collage on ceramic tile 6x6”). I was inspired by Zora Neale Hurston’s quote, “I didn’t just fall in love. I made a parachute jump.”
Christopher Hoppe, "Autumn's Crimson Passion" (oil on canvas 18x24"). Fall is my favorite time and was painting trees because I love painting trees.
Vicky Surles, “December Deer” (watercolor 18x22”). A visiting deer hoping for a food handout at Massanutten Mountain resort.
Martina Sestakova, "The River Keeps Flowing" (Acrylic ink on yupo, 4x6"). This painting is a result of my recent camping adventures, often by delightful creeks. What better adventure in the Fall! Water is so healing. An ever-changing stream that just keeps going: a sign of hope to me. I hope you find this piece calming, yet exciting. A vivid exploration of indigo, which is so lovely.
Leslie Kraff, "Hues of October" (11x14" oil).
