Grand Finale

There's something about fall that excites me.  Summer's winding down and the air is getting
thinner and chilly.  Mornings are filled with a foggy mist that doesn't quite clear until after mid-day.
The colors of fall are spectacular.  Landscapes of pure majesty unlike the subtleness of summer
flower beds in full bloom.  It's the grand finale in our carpet of this fleeting season.  I just love this time of year.


I took these pictures on a hike recently and couldn't pass up on the opportunity to capture the complex
colors and textures of real life.  I could never recreate this on a blank piece of paper from memory.  That's why even if I don't get to creating something with it now, I can look back at these later and be inspired all
over again.  Photography helps me in so many ways from the use of colors, textures, composure, forms and sometimes even the medium in which I work with it.  There's so much to see out there and I don't want to miss any part of the wonderful Mother Earth Show.

I think you should make a fountains abbey quilt with these fall colors.
