Me encanta el otoño. Pero, Buenos Aires en primavera es hermosa. Así que la disfrutamos. :-)
Hermoso trabajo, Gennine!

Even though we're in Florida, it's pretty much "spring" here, too. It rains and storms and is dark and cloudy all summer, so when the fall comes, it's like spring. The sun comes back out, the weather is crisp and dry-er, the trees and flowers come back into bloom again and everything feels alive.

Well, we have a few more days of summer - at least officialy :), but I'm also happy about the autumn - I love it, too, eventhough every season has its own charm for me.

I wish you many coloured leaves, Geninne! :)

Thank you for acknowledging us folk in the southern hemisphere!! Spring is indeed upon us (although it's still cold, but it's a little lighter and the birds are chirpier)... but I absolutely prefer Autumn. Lucky northerners!!

Hola Geninne tengo una duda, de dónde eres? de mexico? radicada en EEUU? ahhh no entiendo...porque yo soy de Chile y acá mañana 21 de septiembre comienza también la Primavera y si tú estas al otro lado del hemisferio cómo es que también es Primavera????
Me encantan tus ilustraciones y tu fabulosa casa.
Muchos cariños y espero que puedas aclarar mi duda.

Very pretty. I'd like to learn how to color my sketches in Illustrator or Photoshop someday.... Maybe I need to do some searching around for how-to's. :)

I love this, you're just as talented in photoshop as by hand! My favorite season is also fall although I've only lived in FL and CA so I've never really been able to experience it!

I hear you've bought some air-plane tickets. I wouldn't do it, they read other people's emails to find inspiration.

Fall is my most favorite season, although it doesn't arrive in the Intermountain West (Nevada) until late October, just before Hallowe'en, my favorite holiday. I adore pumpkins and love to line my entry walk with them, uncarved. They stay there until Christmas. The sycamore tree in the front yard turns golden before dropping it's leaves, the ash turns a lovely burgundy color and makes the walkway look lovely. And it's apple time, does it get any better than that?

Cheers!

Which is faster - hand watercoloring the sketch or coloring in Photoshop? I love fall - it is the only thing I've missed moving to FL from the Midwestern U.S. But we do get respite from the humid hot summer in our fall.

Hola a todos, como dijo Silvia, aquí en Buenos Aires hoy comienza la primavera, que es una de las temporadas más lindas. El otoño, en mi opinión, es la otra.
¡Tus dibujos son PRECIOSOS, Geninne!
