September Moon


These last weeks of summer sag under their own weight and begin to give way to the approaching season. The petunia plants have pretty much stopped flowering and hang bedraggled over the edges of their pots. The night noises of crickets and tree frogs have begun to subside and in their place are more urgent howls and screeches of animals who sense the changes of moisture and temperature. So I'm thinking about autumn and the energy the cooler air brings. I'm thinking how sharply in focus everything seems against an acid-blue sky, almost too perfect to be real, and how the colors of a New England fall day make the simple act of breathing a prayer of thanks. And as much as autumn is the precursor to the sleep and death of winter, it brings to me vitality and purpose, reminding me in the most glorious way that circles do remain unbroken.

very lyrical - both the prose and the picture.Text reminds me of Novalis' Hymns to the Night, really. Do you write regualrly?I find that as one of your interests...

I do not know if this the right place to clarify something about my own work, but do not know any other way of reaching you, so hope you do not mind.
I am referring to your comment on my latest work - Different Worlds. Full title of that piece is really Different Worlds, Bound to clash. It shows children in different parts of the world - from child labour to computer-game-players..the arrangement is in a sort of tectonic plates..it is difficult for me to imagine how children brought up in such different worlds will live harmoniously in future.

Thanks for yor consistent support to my work.

Have a nice day.

This is gorgeous Carla. You have such a talent for color and such a "touch" ...I can't explain it.

( Thanks for adding me to your list over there)

Her face with only one eye visable is very haunting and the haunting feeling is continued with the texture and appearance of the cape. Very nice feel to the piece. Wonderful

Thanks for your post on my 'Roots' illustration. I've been looking at your illustrations as well, and they're very impressive, some of the best stuff I've seen on Illustration Friday.

This'd make a great cover for The Owl Service by Alan Garner! The feel is just right!

Despite the hair color, there's something almost native american about this image. It's really stunning.
