Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! Thank you for joining me and my co-hosts for our weekly art link-up. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing artwork that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges too!

Today is the first day of autumn, so I am putting up a collection of fall-themed art on my Virtual Fridge to celebrate. And I'm pretty sure that sometime today I'll find a way to enjoy something pumpkin spice, apple cider, or maple flavored.

Leaf rubbings are a great simple project for early in the fall - before the leaves get too crunchy!

I saw this idea at a student art exhibition a couple years ago, and we still haven't made our own, but it's on my wishlist. The tree trunk is made from a brown paper bag, and the leaves are puzzle pieces painted orange and yellow.

This was a leaf drawing in chalk pastel that Kennady made a couple years ago. Can you tell that it's made from a hand tracing? (Featured here: Virtual Refrigerator - Autumn Leaves)

Probably my favorite autumn piece - based on a work by Gustav Klimt. You can see the entire artist study and how-to post here: Virtual Refrigerator - Gustav Klimt

My kids always seem to get more creative in the fall! Must be something in the air, even though it doesn't feel anything at all like fall in Texas lol!
