Autumn Inchies

Hand painted paper backgrounds, recycled bird images from encyclopedias, words from NZ house and garden (mostly advertising text.)

20 inchies for a NZ Mail Art Swap, Autumn themed. NZ Mail art is now international and just based in NZ so if you want to join let me know and I will get an invite sent to you:)
Autumn for me is about delicious warm colours- orange, copper, browns, deep reds and the rusty tones of the them all mixing together.

The birds were making a real racket in these trees! One of the trees had berries that were obviously considered to be very delicious by the wide variety of birds that had congregated there. Little wax-eyes, native Tui's and common Thrushes are 3 that I spotted. (Unfortuntely with my zoom you will have to take my word for it!)

Happy Autumn or Spring to you wherever you are!
