Summer is becoming a fading memory. Although we are still experiencing the last of summer, autumn is tentatively making her presence felt.
This weaving of seasons new and old seems to be reflected in the projects that are taking form. For instance a pumpkin child and an apple child have appeared, followed rather quickly by a gracious Strawberry Maiden letting me know that Summer is not yet quite done. Perhaps, too, a little symbolic as strawberries are tiny heart shaped delights; fruits of heart, one could say. And fleeting she was .
The Strawberry maiden has already departed without a photo aside from her little fruity offering.
It is always good to be challenged and to have to take a step into areas not yet explored, like producing a pattern; testing indeed. So for now as words are juxtaposed with ideas and images overlaid by a degree of stress and frenzy, I shall just share some images of these seasonal pieces.
Another Autumn inspiration came as a Harvest maiden carrying a basket containing a teeny apple and pear and coloured maple leaf. Her hair is wreathed with tiny leaves; these are an inspirational offshoot of Autumn gnome.
