From homemade pumpkin pie to relaxing by the fire, it’s all about getting cozy for fall this year. If you’re looking for ways to spice up your home for holiday company, these new pieces at Seaside Art Gallery are sure to delight! Their fun fall themes are gorgeous in any corner of the house or office. Below are some of our favorites.
Taking a walk through town in the crisp autumn air is the perfect way to wind down after a long day. The warm colors in this mixed media piece contrast well with the darker tones of the brick and wood. It’s a beautiful addition to the fall decor in your home.
Check out this curious oil painting from Debra Kierce! It features a robin’s nest in a tree with fall foliage. Somehow, the two opposites look great together in the painting. The blues and oranges are nice complementary colors. Maybe it reminds you of someone who will appreciate the symbolism of coming out of the ‘comfort zone’ in this piece.
Aren’t these furry ermine cute? Ermine are also known as short-tailed weasels. They live mostly in northern Eurasia and North America. Their coats change from brown to white in the winter. These ermine haven’t changed their coats yet, but they sure look ready to hunker down! This watercolor painting is painted with sterling silver by Rebecca Latham.
Sometimes the beauty of the season isn’t from the leaves on the trees. It's the graceful transition of the forest foliage as it gets ready for winter. The pale tones in Jackie Zagon’s Autumn Prelude provide a serene atmosphere for the bedroom or home office. The textures in the mixed media offer good rest for the eyes from computer work, too!
For more original art inspirations of autumn, feel free to browse through the rest of Seaside Art Gallery’s collection. You’ll be sure to impress your guests with unique pieces that are beautiful and cozy. The Gallery can be seen in person or online.

Rebecca Latham is in her studio surrounded by the artwork she’s creating. Her favorite household cat is curled up next to her keeping her warm... with a rolling purr. With her paintings in sight, you can feel the knobby pines, the downy swans, and the wiry coat on the fox kit as she brings them to life on canvas.
It is in this setting that Rebecca shares the journey that brought her here.

While Bonnie Latham was painting art to get ready for The Wonderful World of Wildlife event that is going on right now at Seaside Art Gallery, we found her in her studio and asked her a few questions about her career as an artist.
Here’s a look at a fun one-to-one chat with Bonnie.
