Fall is my favorite season. The richness of this dynamic and colorful season excites and inspires me. I am drawn to the warm colors; the vibrant oranges, reds, yellows, golds, and burgundies which automatically emerge on my palette. However, it isn’t just because the explosion of brilliant colors compete for our attention and demand we stop in appreciation of this bold passage to the next season. I am drawn to this season because of what it represents and how it effects me emotionally. Autumn is nature’s last shout-out. It signifies letting-go, acknowledging change, and that once again, it is time to move on. It reminds us that life is impermanent so live in the present to appreciate the every-day things that are so easily ignored. Embrace the here and now, slow down, retreat indoors and reconnect with ourselves which is the perfect prescription for an artist.
