We confess, it’s hard to say goodbye to summer. But in the wake of the southbound birds and the shortening sunny days, we’re reminded that as one season ends a new one begins. And that means there is always something fun to discover...like original artwork inspired by autumn!

Did you know there are more than a dozen art pieces inspired by the fall at Seaside Art Gallery? Below is a small sampling that caught our eye:

In the Field by Suzanne Morris

Morris’s Plein Air style involves painting outside, a natural fit for this theme. It gets bonus points for the loyal dog, too!

Autumn by the Lake by Stephan Whittle

Who would have thought this amazing lakeside scene is actually a watercolor etching! It looks like a great place to go fall fishing or leaf collecting. The heavenly sunlight and water are the perfect accents that complete the look.
