There is beauty all around us, isn't there. Here are just a few photos I've taken from some of my recent walks around my neighborhood.
|These bright red leaves really caught my attention in the undergrowth.|
|While we aren't always fond of the effects of thistles, they really are a pretty flower.|
The following photos are of a single small tree I saw at Gualala Arts Center. I was struck by how the colors gradually shaded from one hue to another. Bright red at the top through orange, with golden and bright yellow at the bottom of the tree.
I'm thinking this tree photo might be inspiration for a quilt. Colorwash, maybe? Or perhaps lots of little hexagons? The possibilities are there.
