The first day I notice a flash of red or yellow among the tones of green in the woods, it is always a surprise to realize that summer’s end is drawing near.
Soon the tawny colors of Autumn will paint the landscape…Nature will get our attention with a visual reminder that life will always include changes–transitions from one season to another.
This seasonal transition has also served as inspiration for many artists over the years. In a past fall season, after collecting some of the first colorful fall leaves, I traced and used their shapes to design these wall-hangings.
The same leaves were used in both but experimenting with different types of prints, color, and quilting lines resulted in two variations on the same theme.
So in the coming days, I will continue to observe the change of colors in the fall landscape, marvel at the brilliant variety of colors…
along with the many transitions in life.
*I realize not everyone experiences a fall season in the climate in which they live…I’d love to hear about which season or type of climate inspires you!?*
