A Glorious Autumn Day


That light and the orange changing leaves.

It’s been a late wet fall for us here. So you can understand how excited I was yesterday afternoon,  when I went stepped out to a perfect autumn afternoon.It was a perfect autumn day. It was just beyond description. The light washed over everything , you know how in the fall, the late afternoon light changes  to a warm rich golden light? That was yesterday, with the orange leaves back lit by that golden light. they almost glowed. I ran so fast to get my camera, I almost tripped over my own feet in my race for the camera. Here’s a few of the pictures, my ode to Autumn.

Fall decoration. I have a huge fall table quilt in my shop on Etsy, so here’s my idea, which would work if you have a covered entrance. I made a fall bouquet out of the leaves and voila! I just tacked this all up in 2 seconds, imagine what you could do with a little more time!

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. My family is filled with many artist's, so my love of art came naturally. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting. I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild at 15, the youngest member at that time. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, I was raising my children, part of that time as a single parent. My circumstances have changed, the kids are grown and I have more time for Art. Art is a form of therapy for me. I was introduced to quilting & fell in love. In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions to take as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think to myself, "this is one of my better ones". when that happens, I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifying. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.
