Maple Sap and Turkey Tail

As the summer heat turns the milkweed to amber, I know that its just a month or two before the leaves will begin to turn to the gorgeous colors of fall.  One of my favorite colors in our Prairie Paint Fall Collection is Maple Sap.  The color Maple Sap is like a rich, deep orange-ish, golden brown that can be found in the crisp leaves of fall or an heirloom pumpkin.  Whenever I am painting a fall design and need an orange, I reach for Maple Sap.  I do love our Pumpkin Patch color for brighter, vintage inspired oranges, but Maple Sap...
