Happy belated Thanksgiving!  I hope that you all had a lovely, long weekend!

For part of my long weekend I had the privilege of joining some of the amazing painters I have featured in this series at an event in Ottawa.  Despite the crazy weather (from warm and rainy to sunny and cold) we had a blast.  It is always a balm to the soul to spend a little time with like-minded people who have a passion for the same type of creativity as you do.

I also had the lovely opportunity to run down to our family cottage today for the last time this season.  It is always sad at this time of year to think that we have to wait 6 more months to return.  The drive there and back was well worth it though because the leaves were spectacular.  I am so thankful that I live in the part of the world were I get to experience the beauty of Fall every year!  Pumpkins and squash at a roadside stand in OntarioAs we continue to celebrate Fall in Canada, this week we are inspired by orangeOrange is not the most popular colour to paint with, but, it is such a beauty.  From the mellow, buttery yellow orange to the vibrant hues of red oranges it is definitely the perfect colour to represent Fall.

I admit that I do not have much orange in my home, but it always makes me smile when I see a piece painted in orange.  As we head toward Halloween and a time when pumpkins abound… be inspired by orange. orange-chair-orange-michelle-muncasterMichelle Muncaster | A Refreshing Change | Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Barcelona Orange

She believed she could so she didOne of my favourite quotes and since it was orange, I couldn’t help but add it too 😉

If you missed any of our previous weeks, be sure to be inspired by the Fallish beauty of red, yellow and brown.

Next week we’ll be inspired by black!
