Hints of Fall
“With subtle hues of red emerging within bright greens, hints of fall prevail”

This is one of my favorite places to paint! I love looking into this wooded area. The lighting is always captivating with areas brightly lit and others in shadow. Often when I am painting here, I will see deer or other wild life. It is super peaceful and what makes it even more enjoyable is that it borders on a babbling brook. Between the nature and melodic brook sounds, one would think they were listening to a meditative recording.

Today’s Simple Nature Sketch
Dry grasses waver in warm breezes. Their light weight enhances their movement, allowing them to flutter and flow freely. They possess a ribbon like quality in both appearance and movement. Mother nature has faded their hue, adding to the their lightness.
A rustling can be heard as one walks past. It is crisp and soft all at the same time. It won’t be long before a burst of color will once again fill the space they occupy. Sandy colored grasses will be replaced by bright greens. Their flattened state will once again stand tall, greeting those who pass by.
How about you? Do you like the sound of rustling grasses?
