30" by 40" mixed media landscape by Polly Jones

in progress painting by Polly Jones
I thought I'd show a picture of progress on the landscape I'm working on.  I liked the shadow of the paintbrushes on the canvas in the late afternoon light.

Slight Disorder, large original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

Slight Disorder by Polly Jones
I think I'm done.  (for now anyway) It's an acrylic mixed media painting on wood panel. I really liked working this large. My generous husband prepared the panel for me.

Not a pumpkin original painting by Polly Jones

Acorn Squash by Polly Jones

Fall paintings by Polly Jones
I'm mixing it up a little bit.  Acrylic and mixed media painting on 6" square canvas.  Hiding underneath it is a poem about dreaming.  I thought I had committed the poet's name to memory but didn't.  Next time may have to resort to writing it down.  On Etsy here for now but will be in my giveaway choices later.
