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, Β 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,Β the lateΒ afternoon light changes Β 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.

FallΒ decoration. I have aΒ hugeΒ 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. 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 was completely out of place, I tried to go unnoticed, a mute fly on the wall, with a big smile pasted on my face. I've continued to paint most of my life. After a move to Oregon years later, I was introduced to quilting and fell in love. 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. There are often many changes and adjustments along the way. The result can often be surprizing. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction. I love that element of surprize! Sometimes I have one that I especially like, I can't wait to show someone. At that moment l 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 some of my work published in several magazines. which is exciting. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.
