|"September Sunset," 8 x 10 watercolor, 140 lb Fabriano Artistico extra white cold press paper|
In the northern latitudes or the mountains, it's already here. But where ever, you can see the light changing, hear the leaves cluttering, see the seed time ripening.
Ray Bradbury wrote a book called October Country, and as I watched the season change, I thought there is also a September Country.
There's metaphor there too, especially as you age. Every day is shorter, every sunset is more valuable.
Today's quick watercolor took me on that journey. I find it interesting that I'm painting more and more in orange, the complementary of my favorite blues. Not sure why, but orange is also a color of September.
