While in the beautiful setting of Lynn Valley, the fallen leaves on the ground lead me on paths of colour investigation and admiration of natures changing seasons. The linear patterns of bare trees and intertwined branches also called to be investigated – and for me that was with paint (as can be seen in my videos below).
With limited daylight of the evening and the cooler shadows in the valley I sensed a depth of cold coming upon me like that of winter on a tree. The bright colours I put in my painting helped me feel warmer though I was aware of the darker and colder days that lay ahead.
With the busy season upon us, of intertwined activity and the year coming to an end, may we remain steadfast like the trees left without their leaves ready to receive the new growth that always follows.
Wishing you and yours much warmth in your hearts and homes this season. Jane
