"Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life. " ~ Rachel Carson
~ October is here in the mountains, leaves slowly changing to gold amid the emerald shades above: now and then a lone leaf drifts to earth. Fall tends to be a creative month for me: the temperatures cool from sultry summer, glorious crisp afternoons are meant to paint, to sculpt, to inhale...as if you could hold the moment forever. This is an "Esto Perpetua" landscape from the long-time series I've worked on for almost ten years now. It remains a perennial favorite, although I fall in love with them all, like children, and send them out into the world to create good energy wherever they may land! In the beginning, a golden fall afternoon is where it all started: I painted the first one. A leaf fell to earth, then another, and another.
Open Studio at my Art House will be Saturdays throughout October, from 1-3 p.m. Drop by or by appointment at other times.
