Wieder Herbst... Autumn again

This time autumn comes with a November calendar page I made last Sunday, the quotation is from Persuasion by Jane Austen. One of my favourite autumn quotations? whatever other beautiful quotations autumn might have extracted from various minds...^
Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn, that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness, that season which has drawn from every poet, worthy of being read, some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.
And of course, thanks to my friend Tanya for giving me this lovely Bastelkalender which gives youк imagination whole 24 pages (12 white and 12 black) to fill in! The November page was the 1st one I used, after the year is almost gone, but there are only 7 days in the week so calendars have a tendency to repeat themselves every several years...
Tomorrow is the last day of October... so introducing a November calendar page is rather appropriate!

The Blue Castle

Those who read it know that it's a beautiful book/ The nature in Lucy Maud Montgomery's descriptions is so breathtakingly beautifil, in other words I'в say her books are a treat for the eye too (for the inner eye for that matter).

Here's my attempt to transform words into a visual image (Valancy's Blue Castle come true on Barney's island)

Still more autumn

I love this season and I'm enjoying its beauty a lot in spite of all other things in my life that would spoil my enjoyment (and there are quite a few actually!)

These are two glimpses at my desk last wee.


P.S. I promise more autumn posts!

October mood

Here is a lovely picture from http://www.duirwaighgallery.com/inspiration_aknock.htm.

With October outside, cold winds, clear autumn sky, silvery frost on the grass and darkened leaves in the morning, I think this artwork would very well pass to romantic autumn mood!

Edward proposes to Elinor

I wanted to make an update, and since I am rereading bits of Sense and Sensibility right now I thought I would post this sketch.Just a small sketch, I am not much of an artist!

Autumn is lovely

These are from our local park on the last (and the sunniest and the loveliest) Sunday of September
