Autumn Textures

Autumn begins this evening - one of my favorite times of the year!  Partly because everything turns new colors, and I'm a total color freak.  But also because of the different textures as leaves and flowers fade, dry, and decompose.  Early autumn reminds me of Dutch still life paintings - mixed in with the still vibrant flowers and fruit are ones that are already beginning to break down.  The ripeness of summer is fleeting.  In my last few summer days on the farm, I've been gathering up photos that I can work with over the winter, creating new fiber art.


Happy Creating!  Deborah
