Autumn Musings

selfie in the studio

Delicious autumn!
My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
George Eliot

Autumn has a way of slowing time for me. Out on my bicycle today, the air definitely had a sharper bite. Looking down at the fields as I rode by, I noticed frost. The longer I rode, the warmer I got and soon the air was not biting but coaxing me to stay out and enjoy the sunny, Autumn day. I came back ready to continue working on my art. I feel fortunate that I can do art full-time and grateful to my Husband's hard work that makes it possible.

For the photo above, I took the plexiglass that I use for my monoprinting and linocut printing. I put that in front of my camera lense. The plexiglass has scratches and acrylic paint residue which came through in the photo. Also, the sun just happened to be breaking through the trees as the self-timer went off.

What a beautiful effect, dreamlike. Perfect for an autumn day. You are indeed lucky to be able to do your art full time.

Thanks for your comment on mine.

LOVE the "filter" you created for the photo using the plexiglass. It lends such a nice softness, dreaminess to your image. So nice to see you. :o) There is so much to enjoy about autumn, it has a way of helping is naturally slow down. Spring & Summer heighten our senses. Autumn & Winter help us mellow. :o) Happy Days, Juana ((HUGS))

What a lovely self-portrait and such a creative way to use a filter! The photo has a wonderful daydreamy quality that matches your gaze out the window. Found you through 52 photos project.
