Back in September, I went out one morning with my camera to look for the first signs of Fall. The leaves hadn’t begun to change yet — it still pretty much looked like summer (except that the playgrounds were empty because everyone went back to school). There were no sights, yet, that gave me that “mind-blown-by-fall’s-intensity” feeling that I had hoped to find.
So I decided to swap out my eyeballs for a pair more attuned to spotting the subtle things. Then I looked down and lo, I found the beginning of fall’s bounty, scattered everywhere beneath my feet.
Here’s my watercolor and ink drawing/painting that came out of that experience. It’s my celebration of the unexpected beauty I found on a dirt path one morning in September.
(And hey, if you want to celebrate, too, you can buy this at Society 6).
