Autumnal Equinox!

5:56 AM

Yes! Finally! It is here. Officially. Autumn!!!

Autumn's Glorious Colors
Captured in a Watercolor Leaf
I think someone might have forgotten to tell Mother Nature as our temps are still hitting the 90's everyday. However, there is slightly less humidity and every once in a while one of those sweet, caressing breezes that just makes you slow down and breathe a little deeper!

The solstice has always been a great time to check in with my muse and goals to see how I'm doing. I know I've been all over the board this year with my goals and as you all know, my muse has been keeping me quite busy. (Love that girl!) I see some really "interesting" stuff in the works. I'm not sure which way it might to turn out yet. I just know with all the energy building, something exciting is bound to come out of all of it! (I'll share more when I know more. Right now, the Universe is being rather cryptic.)

Tonight will also be a Harvest Moon—a full moon on the Solstice! So with that in mind, I'm wishing you a beautiful, moonlight-dancing, soul-inspiring solstice!

  1. Gorgeous colors, Laure, and I love the way they flow together!

    I am SO ready for cooler weather, too, and feel those subtle changes around me as well.

    Isn't it wonderful to feel those stirrings of energy and creative forces gathering? I can't wait to see what comes...

  2. That has got to be the most perfect leaf I've ever seen!

  3. It is comforting to see these rich fall colors. Here it is so dry and hot that the leaves on the trees are shriveling up. Scary. I will look to the moon and think about you seeing the very same one this evening. Happy Autumn.

  4. Lovely leaf!!!! Colors are beautiful, I love the Fall. The calendar says it is autumn but the temperatures scream summer!!!!!

  5. Like you, I too am very excited about the advent of Autumn! Seems like this has been a very long summer.
    I love your leaf painting. Our leaves are still green and our temps are still in the low 90's.
    I'm looking forward to seeing what future projects you have planned.

  6. Can't wait to see what you are planning. Today is actually windy and supposed to be cooler with a high of 84 degrees. That's cool for us but it'll start going up again tomorrow. I have to enjoy it when I get it though. I didn't realize the full moon was tonight. It was so bright last night I didn't need a light when I let the dogs outside!

  7. ...beautiful leaf--love the colors. It's going to be 93 degrees here also. We haven't had a soaking rain since July 23rd--I think Mother Nature is on strike here!

    Looking forward to the beautiful moon tonight--and we might get some rain too! Happy Solstice to you!

  8. GORGEOUS colors Laure!!! Truly autumnal.
    Thanks for your hugs and prayers.

  9. How beautiful - I'm glad to see all the autumnal delights on the blogs at the moment. No changes like that here in Malaysia!

  10. beautiful, Laure--I've seen some chilly temps on my trip, but yesterday, here in Cambridge MA was HOT! I'm ready for fall. Bring on more of these!

  11. Wonderful painting and beautiful colors.

  12. Thank you, Brigitte, for stopping by!

  13. You've captured all the myriad of autumn colours in just one leaf. Beautiful!

  14. What a great blog! I love your work. Every time I visit I see something new. Today I watched your video about painting a bird house! How fun is that... Thanks for sharing.

  15. Thanks, Teresa!

    Gillian, leaves are my absolute favorite to try and render in the sketchbook!

    Thank you, Jacqueline!
