October Rose

Living a creative life is about finding inspiration in all things and finding joy in gathering them up and incorporating them into the daily routine. At least, this is what I think it is all about…

This painting of random gatherings that were available at the end of October is a physical manifestation of what I mean. Individually all these items, the rose, the crab apples, and the curling leaves, will catch the eye, though when placed together this is when they begin to illustrate the wonder and variety found in the autumn season.

What has your attention this autumn?
