Faded pink



Faded pink, left over colors of summer. Fall is in full swing, what colors have been in the trees are faded and rain has come to wash the landscape clean. Cool air is creeping into the corners of the house. And with the setting of the clocks back, evening arrives in the late afternoon. Winter is not far away. I love this time of year, the settling in, a cozy fire, warm bath, flannel sheets. I hope you all have a good week.

  3. you've captured that cozy feeling well. (those faded pinks are so lovely - our magnolia has cream-colored seed pods.)

    (and there's nothing better than sitting next to a warm little dog, enjoying a brisk november day :)

  4. The way you make winter sound so inviting may help me to reframe it positively ... I always go kicking against the change of the seasons but this year, this year it will be hibernation - time to make art and read and write. Cosy indeed! penny x

  6. You have captured a stunning colour. Faded colours are the most difficult to represent in painting.

  7. What a beautiful photo. Winter is well on its way here in the UK. It's so wet and muddy everywhere, we need a good hard frost to harden the ground again. I'm sure we'll be getting snow soon!
