What inspired you to use color? I am an art teacher and a painter so color is my world. My inspiration comes from the beautiful world around me. Whether it's a simple leaf that fell at my feet, a tea bag wrapped in colorful paper, a shinny brightly colored car that passes me on the street or a color mixed by my 2nd grade students. Sometimes its more than just the color that inspired me, it's the intensity or the hue that whispers in my ear. Color fills me up like I am part of the canvas that is my home. I just wish I had more than 366 sqft to paint on...

Color Tip: Using color properly comes from experimentation. If you do not experiment you will be doomed to living in a dull world.
Colors Used: Leather Vest, Pecan Sandie, Amber Dusk, burnt sienna

Fall Colors Introduction -------------------------------

Welcome, everyone, to our Fourth Annual Fall Colors Sharing & Contest. We're looking for the most beautiful & colorful home in the world and sharing all of the great ideas we get with our readers. This year we're amping things up and hoping to do things better than ever. There are two basic phases, the Sharing Phase and the Voting Phase...

1. Sharing Phase - you comment, judges decide

The 40 best, completed entries will be posted on a daily basis for three weeks. You can view them all at anytime via our new, improved contest pages under ALL ENTRIES. During this time your comments are VERY IMPORTANT as our six judges will be choosing 16 finalists from each region based on comments and their own colorful opinion.

2. Voting Phase - you vote till you drop

Starting October 20th, finalist voting will begin on a daily basis through our new bracketed voting system, which will pit our 16 finalists against one another until only one remains. Sound exciting? We hope so.

Best, Maxwell
