Autumn Hike, Forest Floor and a Pillow
A few weeks ago we hiked to Marlette Lake. A hike we try to do every year.
The leaves were just starting to turn and beautifully free of spots and crinkling.
Remnants from summer camp maybe. There were a few decorations here and there on some trees along the road up to the lake.
The hike inspired me to make autumn forest floor theme illustrations. I wanted to include snails since I don't see them in the desert. I like their swirls and antennae.
Golden leaves, pine cones and a variety of mushrooms.
Here's the the pattern I designed on a pillow. I included pebbles, lichen, spatter and spots to fill in the background.
Autumn kitchen towels. I have a weakness for kitchen towels. I love to collect them and use them for holidays and the changing seasons.
