It’s easy for me to get stuck in my little artist world…either sitting in front of my computer or working away on some craft project, painting, or sketch. And sometimes I get so lost in this world, that I forget to return to the original source of my inspiration.
“If autumn is my inspiration, why was I sitting inside trying to conjure up an alphabet full of Fall goodness?” This is the question that began floating through my head after taking a lovely walk with Dan during which I collected a handful of especially colorful and interesting leaves. I am such a scavenger, and yet, I wasn’t scavenging in the right places. “F is for foliage” had never occurred to me….that is until I took a step outside and noticed all the beautifully-colored leaves beneath my feet. Of course. It was so obvious. But, I had to look outside of myself to see it. Such it is with so much of life.
