Autumn is often called golden and it’s easy to guess why: the leaves on the trees change their color from summertime green to various shades of yellow, which is associated with gold. And, it‘s almost impossible to truly describe the variety of colors decorating the trees: red copper, yellow ocher, brownish bronze, pale and orange gold, and so many more. These colors are always reminiscent of autumn. If you’re lucky enough to be walking in a park painted with the hues of autumn, you may spot squirrels scampering through the gilded treetops, and young children swishing their feet through the crispy leaves blanketing the paths. You may even be inspired to join in the fun. It’s a pity that this beautiful time of year is so short-lived. The wool painting “Gold autumn” will add warmth and charm to your home throughout the year and is sure to draw the attention of your guests.

I also offer different frames and can switch to the frame of your choice.
You can also buy the wool painting as is, without frame and glass. To keep the painting safe during shipping, a plexiglass cover will be used to protect the fibers. You can then use the frame of your choice to display the image.
To create my paintings, I use a unique technique called “Wool Painting”, also known as “Wool Watercolor”. All of my paintings are made from 100% Merino sheep’s wool by hand placing fine wool fibers layer by layer on the back of the picture frame, covered with glass and inserted into the frame. This process does not use any glue, needle, water, or paint.
Wool paintings carry special warmth and energy as wool is a natural, living material that keeps the mood and warmth of artist’s hands. Wool paintings have useful properties: they relax, soothe, and calm as the viewer pleasantly examines them. A photo of a wool painting does not convey all that can be felt upon close and detailed examination. By owning such painting, you can ask your guests the mysterious question of what material is it made of. They will generally be indecisive on if it is painted in oil or with watercolor, but decidedly delighted when they learn it is natural sheep’s fiber. Wool painting is always a stylish decoration and original gift. It creates an atmosphere of magic and fills your home with comfort.
