0*6*Art*Art*0 — Week 81 Gallery

Fall themes and colors predominate in this week’s art gallery.

And why not? It’s mid-October.

Soon, it will be turkeys and Santas. But for now: enjoy the foliage and fresh air!

And remember: Whatever your age and level of experience — professional or amateur, young or old — this feature is open to everyone.

All genres and styles are encouraged too. Watercolors, oils, charcoal, pen-and-ink, acrylics, lithographs, macramé, jewelry, sculpture, decoupage (and now needlepoint) — whatever you’ve got, email it to dwoog@optonline.net. Share your work with the world!
