Anticipating Autumn!

Soon we’ll be bidding farewell to summer’s warm weather and preparing for a new season. It is the cooler weather and the shorter days ahead that will provide us with autumn’s vibrant palette. With that in mind, this issue features a wide variety of projects that reflect the tantalizing colors of the season. Whether your chosen medium is watercolor, oil, or acrylic, these projects truly reflect the beauty of fall’s rich spectrum.

We’ve got you covered—from your walls, to your tabletops, to your front porch, and more—with seasonal favorites, including a harvest-themed lazy Susan, a colorful cookie tin, an autumn tray, as well as a variety of canvases, boxes, and plaques. Paint the designs as shown or adapt them to surfaces that you might already have on hand.

Happy Painting!
