Have you ever felt melancholy during the change of season? Autumn is my favorite season of all, but I still feel a bit low at Summer's end. There are smells all about me right now that signal the oncoming Fall season...a dampness in the soil, the last hint of Lavendar ~
A late Summer garden visitor, sharing her beauty and snacking on sugar water from the Hummingbird feeder ~
There's a particular glare that comes with the change as well. Everything is dreamy yellow. As I say good-bye to Summer, I find myself anxiously awaiting the first peek-a-boo of turning leaves....scarlett, orange and coral. Natures passion, her fiery gift of color ~
Soon, it will be time to carve Jack-O-Lanterns ~
and feast on generous amounts of candy ~
But for today, as I await the Fall with open arms, I will allow myself just a bit of self-indulgent melancholy.
Memories of beach days ~
and bare feet ~
Along with the changing season comes a busy schedule for me.
I have 2 collages ~
and a doll ~
in a local Gallery House show, and one secret project that I can't mention! :)
Ohhh...and something that I am over the moon excited about...my friend, Shell, and I are attending our Orientation meeting for The Art of Elysium. We will be donating our time, as artists, to Los Angeles area hospitals working with chronically and terminally ill children. This is something that I have wanted to do for ever so long. It will be difficult, heartbreaking and rewarding all at once. I hope very much that I will be able to be a positive light in the lives of these children.
Ohhh...and may I just go ahead and market a wee bit? I'm having a BOGO (Buy One Get One Free) sale in Gerushia's Etsy Shop. All 4" x 6" prints are BOGO. With the holidays just around the corner, this is a great time to buy art for gifts! Take advantage of the sale, if you like.
Until Next Time:
