Closing the book on another season
I think the thing I will miss most about the exit of summer is the lack of sunlight and the longer days. I've really started to notice the early onset of dusk lately and my own internal clock telling me it's time for bed much earlier than during the summer months. I say the above for purely selfish reasons of course. I find it so much more difficult to work when the light is not good and need to see the colors in good light. I recall making a pendant in the evening a few years ago, thinking it was in one color and astonished to see in daylight that it was completely off. I do have an OTT light and that helps a bit, but need more than that one illumination to carry out big projects.
So the sunflower, with its radiation of leaves and face to the sun, is my salute to summer past...Maybe I will write about that in my art journal today.
