A Fall Walk

While working on my latest art project, I decided to soak in some sun and inspiration, and also study my topic (Trees!) up close! Come take a walk with me!

Enjoy the grace and beauty, personality and strength of these mighty and ancient oaks.

And back in the studio… a visitor appeared amongst my tree study!

There came a sense of humor in this sketch as I hung “木” Trees and “林” forests in her branches. Her whimsical face reminds me to enjoy the season; to look closer when I am on my nature walks; notice the rainbows of leaves drifting down, see how the wind makes shadows dance in the approaching fall storms, and admire the jarring contrasts of brilliant orange trees against the deep grey sky.   

Enjoy this wonderful Fall season and of course, the company of Trees!

      Thank you Roxanne! It’s a magical little meadow, and I plan to one day soon take students out there and do some journaling. Perfect spot.
