The past made current again

It may not be new, but this piece is still lovely to me. I've always loved how the colors gently moved into and around each other. The coolest blue I could mix combined with a bright pale orange. Finished off with dark purple. And the mysterious shapes that overlap it all. It speaks to me now because this is basically the point in autumn that we are at here in New England. There is still some beauty, but it is fading quickly as the cold airs come in. But there is still this crispness to hand onto.

It was a lovely weekend filled with as nice as the weather is going to get until well into next year. Hope all my readers, wherever you may be, had a wonderful weekend as well with gorgeous weather. And if not, here's hoping for next weekend.

This piece is perfect for November. It adds some color to the gray New England days!

We're having almost spring-like weather up here. I hope it lasts for a few more days... I'm trying to soak it all up before winter begins!

Lovely print. Looks just like Northampton in November! I'm working with autumn colors these days too. Can't seem to help myself.

Autumn is infective in a wonderful way. Pity to see it ending. I always thought the Canadians had it right having Thanksgiving in October, because by the time the end of November rolls around everything is dead.

I'm all about the layers!
