Autumn Individuality

There are many things to love about this time of year in this place — the cool nights, the dry air, the blue, blue sky– the relief from hot summer —  I love them all. I especially love the changing of the trees. There’s a flame red one at the corner of my street, and our own maple has a far-off edge of yellow. In the mass of a line of maples not far from here, one yellow one reveals itself against the green of its neighbors. I just love that. I see it as a metaphor. We’re all out there, standing, walking, working, driving around in masses and bunches. We’re part of the crowd of humanity, and yet we have our own edges.

Welcome to my blog where I write about the art and craft of my business.My goal is to make beautiful things, to make art part of everyday life, and to make my friends and family smile. Not necessarily in that order.

    That’s a gorgeous print. I too love the Autumn. All of those warm colours really appeal to me so I love that point where the low, golden sun is hitting all the leaves in their various shades of greens, reds, oranges and browns.

  2. Yes! That low slanting sun. Thanks for the comment.
