Autumn


Autumn

Don't the colors in this bowl remind you of fall and the trees changing? As you can see there is a heavy concentration of rusts and oranges in this piece. I left a little of the green just to give the impression that the tree leaves had not changed color completely. In this case one of my favorite Bullseye colors, Mineral Green, to represent the remaining leaves. And I added some Bullseye marzipan and amber streakie to represent a little of the tree bark...I'm thinking of Aspen bark.

Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the crisp cool air as summer fades. Aspens are one of my favorite trees. They generally turn a beautiful rich gold, but there are those rich russet ones that show up here and there as Dan & I find when we hike in the fall. I can't wait! This year we will hike Rocky Mountain National Park and I'll be looking for those rust colored Aspens, while the bull elks bugle in the background. I love fall.

Kathleen, this is gorgeous! I love fall and fall colors, too. Love your description here.
What do you/Dan use to create that beautiful, soft reflection underneath the bowl? The photo is fabulous, too!

Hi Robin! Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comments.

I owe Dan the photo credit. He has done such a great job in taking pictures of my work.

Hi Linda! I'll pass along your comment to Dan. Thanks; glad you like the bowl.

Hi Sandy. Dan has ordered graduated backgrounds for photo back drops. This one fades from light to dark gray. Glad you like the piece too. Thanks.
