I LOVE FALL
As An Artist I Am In My Element
I have always loved the Fall Season. There is so much about it to love. The feel of the air. The smell of the vegetation as it draws itself into sleep for the winter. The taste of drinks and foods that say Autumn is here and the colors; oh those glorious colors.
I was born in the Fall Season but I do not think that is why I love fall. I am sure some Psychiatrist would disagree if he had me on his couch. Fortunately I am not neurotic enough to need a therapist digging into my psyche… I can dig into my own psyche, My mind, the mind of a Scorpio, can at times be a scary thing and that’s why Autumn is important to me.
The bright colors of Autumn push the dark within my mind back into the corners where the darkness belongs. Life weighs heavy on my artist soul and Autumn lifts that weight as my artist pallet again translates the season onto the canvas of my art and my life.
Some of what I create this Fall will be done within the Free Art Classes I am giving on Facebook Live every Wednesday. In that way I can share my love of the season with others, But some of my Autumn Art will be done within the darkness of the night in the wee hours of the morning. As I sit at my table inside my warm, cozy home by the fireplace and create the colorful images of Autumn while the wood nymphs’ frolic outside my window in the cool air kicking up the fallen leaves.
What colorful pieces of art will I catch this season with my camera that I can later translate onto paper and canvas? Who knows? What I do know is that whatever I create it will be glorious and uplift my heart and soul.
