It's the colour...

Fall is all about the colour, isn't it?  There are incandescent golds against a background of deep forest green,

and the flaming reds that make a heart leap.

In our front yard we have a very large pair of maple trees, and at this time of the year they nearly dance with riotous joy.  If humans displayed themselves in this manner, we'd likely be jailed for exhibitionism!

I love the fall colours, the opportunity to walk for miles without expiring in the heat, and the crisp feel of the air.  And nature's palette  inspires me in the studio, so I think I'll go paint some paper, and use some of those dried and pressed leaves from last autumn, and maybe layer some translucent film strips and do some outlining in gold....
