Another painting begun....


"Autumn Palette"


Painting outside today....

Today I did something that I have only done twice before, last summer, and I was not pleased with my results at that time....a Hartford Courant reporter asked me some time ago if I was to ever paint outside, if I would let him know so that he could photograph it. Today was that watch the Hartford Courant this weekend, print or online....and the best thing is, I have come a long way.....I LIKE this painting! I have a little tweaking to do to it, then I will post the finished piece.

Pat Morris Art  October 2012

October’s beauty is so humbling; I just returned from a weekend in Vermont and the colors there are outstanding. What a glorious time of year!
Today is the public debut of my paintings on artist’s conks (shelf mushrooms); they are my newest “canvas” from nature and are now on my website at
I am really enjoying using nature’s canvas, and I have a fresh supply of wild turkey feathers to paint, thanks to some generous hunters in Vermont. I am planning to return to Vermont for Columbus Day, at the Wilmington Flea Market on Route 9 in Wilmington….it’s a great time for the southern VT foliage! And then I will be at the Wolf’s Den State Park powwow on the next weekend, a good place to be.
I have two new holiday shows in CT that I will be participating in, one in Vernon and the other in Pomfret; check my show schedule at and feel free to email or call me abou…
