How is it already September?! Summer was going by so fast and before I knew it it's the end of summer already (at least in Yukon..)
I sometimes want summer to last forever, but a part of me also knows the fall colors and winter darkness bring perspective and light in its own way. It's the fall colors that bright us up, bringing red, yellow, orange, green, and so many colors combinations that catch my heart and eyes. It's at the darkness that we see the northern lights, stars and constellations. It's the darkness that centers us back inwards. It's the darkness that brings a different kind of light, more bright, more clear, and more from inside rather than outside.
And as always- why not paint what I love and need! I'm excited to have taken part at the Northern Nights event in Kluane for the third year and paint the night sky under the night sky (and by a heater in a tent ;) it's getting cold!)
I invite you to have a look around, and remember to stop and breath every now and then, take the colors and lights in, and continue more rejuvenated, inspired and colorful. I invite you to paint at home (see tip for art at home in my newsletter, or if you’re not on it join the newsletter at “contact me” on this website) ,or get outside and join me at the Northern Nights workshop at kathleen Lake (see at upcoming workshops and events), or just take a longer walk today, have a look around, enjoy the colors in your own way, and allow yourself to change with the seasons. :)
Until next time!
