The Beauty of Fall

Fall is my favorite season.  After six months of the heat and humidity of a Texas summer I am more than ready for a change.  I love fall colors, although we don't get too much of that down here, and of course, I love feeling that (very slight) chill in the air.

When I think about it, a disproportionate amount of my artwork features fall scenes.

Here's my latest artwork, "Country Lane in Fall", which is available as a poster, as well as on numerous different products, such as this mousepad.

Last week, I wrote a post on my Art by Jayne Wilson blog about how I created this image in the 3D graphics program, Vue.

One of my favorite fall-themed artworks is "Autumn Companions". It's seen here with a wonderful quote from Elizabeth Lawrence, "Even if something remains undone, everyone should take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."

This is another autumn scene, Autumn by the Lake, which depicts a deserted lakehouse, surrounded by trees with turning leaves. All the summer visitors have gone home, leaving only the rowboat tied to the dock.

On a more whimsical note, this sweet Autumn Fairy is a departure from my usual style of art. Earlier in the year I did a number of fantasy artworks, of which this was one.

There are so many gorgeous autumn themed designs on Zazzle, I hardly know where to start. I'll just show you a few that caught my eye and then I'll let you have a turn.

My first selection is "Autumn Stillness," a poster from Zazzle designer HopefulOne, a very serene scene of a pathway leading through woodland.

This canvas print, "Tree Story" from yesterdaysgirl looks like tryptych with three side by side images of a tree through the seasons.

Couples planning to get married in Fall will love this colorful Fall Wedding invitation from pics4weddings. It features colorful yellow, red and orange leaves falling into a river and is easily customized with your own wedding details.

Or perhaps you're planning a fall baby shower. There are hundreds of selections on Zazzle, including this one from OrangeOstrichDesigns.

A great way to bring some autumn color in to your home is with this Autumn Leaves Are Falling Throw Pillow by Zazzle designer CustomPro.

Imagine sitting on the deck of your lake house in autumn, taking in the panorama of the fall colors around you and sipping hot coffee from your Lake House Personalized Coffee Mug! What a great idea from pamdicar!
As always, I could go on and on but I'll wrap it up here. Now it's your turn. If you are a designer on Zazzle, you are invited to add a link to your fall or autumn-themed designs in the Linky Tool below. Use Option 1 in the Link Widget on the page of the Zazzle product/design you'd like to add. It will show up below as a small thumbnail and when clicked on, will link directly to your product.


  1. Thanks, Jayne! —Hopefulone (Geri)

  2. Lovely autumn images! Thank you for the promotion opportunity!

  3. This is a lovely page to view with all the wonderful Fall colors. I am in New England and things are winding down here. I hate that the season passes so quickly.
    Thank you so much for including my mug here. I took that photo at a lake in NH. It was early morning with fog covering the water and the bright foliage was hit by the sunrise. I don't live on a lake, but made the mug with those lucky people in mind.
