Autumn already! I guess being inside away from the weather for the last couple of weeks has allowed Autumn to steal up on me but the light definitely has a different colour and quality despite the warm weather. The shadows are lengthening on our deck and as I sat this afternoon the light streaming in illuminated this bright reddish orange bucket, transforming the plastic to a sparkling jewel. From base metals gold? Unfortunately the alchemy did not work for my painting but I had a good time doing it.
