Friday Art: Little fall painting


Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.  
George Eliot

Fall is pretty here this year - we still have sunshine and beautiful, crisp light. This week is a very busy one for me, so forgive me if i'm a little lazy blogging. Any plans yet for the weekend?  I'll be mostly working, but hope to squeeze in a few fun things as well. And i'll sleeeeeeeep in and have late breakfasts, and  - i'll visit all of you - promise!

  29. Martina, I adore this picture for its colours, mood, spirit and its soul. I find that during autumn I tend to be very creative - it must be that space between summer and winter that lends the ripening of the spirit for creative outlet. xx
