Signs of Change

I always realize how much I like change, when the seasons change. I can't tell you if I like spring most or fall, but I love when everything in nature changes so drastically.
Here in the south, the seasons are less obvious, but on my walk with Winslow this morning, fall colors were showing up everywhere.
I can't help but take pictures every time, so be prepared for more photos of leaves, mushrooms and anything else that reminds me that the heat is over for now...
Thank you all so much for your great comments the last few days! They were so helpful, and as I embark on a less scheduled life, I will let you know how it goes. It definitely allows for plenty of surprises throughout the day!

Yesterday, for example, I went upstairs to get something I needed, caught a glimpse of the painting I am working on and - half an hour later - I finally made it back downstairs with whatever it was I needed and my hands covered in paint.
Do you see the red heart in the lower left corner? That's for you all! Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday!!

  1. Love the leaves with the Spanish Moss in them! Beautiful!!!
    And glad that you are letting the muse guide you--it will all feel more natural soon.
    I want to try and make it out of the studio today with the camera, see if I can find some leaves begging for a portrait to be taken. ;)

    XXOO~~♥

  2. I love the colorful leaves you have already. Great shots you took of them too! We have a bit of color, but it hasn't hit it's peak around here yet. Soon though...I love the heart leaf especially. :-)

  3. The fall colors are so magnificent. That is one thing I really miss here in Southern California. It doesn't get cold enough where I am to see these wonderful changes. I'd be outside everyday with my camera if I had scenery like this to look at. xoxo Diane

  10. Wow, what beautiful fall leaves! That first looks like "liquid amber" but I am not very good with trees. Love the light coming through! It would also be great inspiration for painting!
