My entry for
's contest. The theme is Autumn. I hope she likes it. *Crosses Fingers*.
I had about a month of non-stop brian storming before I was satisfied with my idea here. Spent about another month of gathering materials and finding the time to paint!
I didn't want to do a picture of just falling leaves. Thats what everyone thinks of first when they hear the word autumn. I really wanted to bring out the feeling of the season with nostalgic icons like a warm scarf, a large and ready to carve pumpkin, and a hot cup of coffie to warm the body as well as the soul. I really was trying to think of all the things I enjoy about the season, and as I was coming up with them, Aidan (the character pictured above) seemed to be the perfect ermine to place in my Fall scene.
Media used: acrylic on 15x20 barkwood paper.
