I love this time of clean up as I trim I am collecting seed heads for next year. It also provides me with some great subjects for my sketchbook. Its a time to really take a good look at things and journal about it. Seed pods are one of my favorite things to paint, rose hips, the last of the flowers. I have a special Garden Sketchbook where I journal about my garden and yard, nothing else goes into that book but those types of sketches, notes and ideas.
Do you paint your own cards? It is a wonderful way to share your artwork and a piece of yourself with friends and families during the holidays. There are many online companies that make it so easy to create your own cards for the Holidays. I often add text to the cover and family photos inside with a personal message to my friends and family. A gift to them from me! Happy Fall!
