Progression - Fall and Helicopter Seed pods

The leaves are falling from the trees and my sidewalk is littered with what we used to call "helicopters". I've been fascinated by the shapes and today I painted some.

New Season, new beginnings

It's beginning to feel a little like fall here, though the days have been gloriously sunny. We had a beautiful blue moon over the weekend and I am accepting that summer is over. There are some other changes happening in my life...letting some things go, to allow space for new things to come in.

Wet Stones 

I got out the watercolor crayons I took with me to Penland and spent half an hour in the morning at my kitchen table drawing. I'm pleased with the results. I wet the paper first with a watercolor brush, then started drawing how the color feathers out on the wet paper. The paper is Rives BFK which deliciously takes color and ink. I plan to do more of this.
