Dying days of Summer


There is a shortening of days as the solstice draws closer, some years these are the best days of all.   Autumn is arriving together with its riot of colour some greens, golds, reds, oranges and yellows.   If we are lucky the weather will be dry and we can rustle though them piled up in the pavements.   I get thoughts like these every autumn.

Expressed them here in a 6" tando grey board, first coated with white gesso.   When that was dry more less dry brushed DecoArt blue and green over it.   Stamping is in Archival  Orange Blossom, yellow DecoArt acrylic filled the Stampendous Sun, the Heartfelt flowers were coloured with Chameleon Pens.   The bee is a Magenta Stamp.   If you look carefully bottom left you can see the faint lines of a silver spider web.   I love seeing the big autumn webs especially in the morning while they are dew covered.  To finish DI Vintage Photo brushed over the edges.   Really pleased with this one it seems to represent autumn at least to me.
