You ask about the change of seasons. Yes, on most days, the sun is just as hot as it was before, sometimes even feels hotter on my skin, but there is a change in the mornings and evenings…the temperature is cooler. An extra blanket is needed at night. The colors are brighter, the sky bluer, the most glorious time of the year. The markets are filled with fall produce. And I think, the color orange begins to appear everywhere, on mountain sides as the trees don their new fall apparel. Pumpkins stacked by the roadside. The sunsets a brilliant orange. I am not sure about the scientific explanation of why this is so. But I am sure it has to do with the sun and the moon, the stars in the sky, our path around the sun, and every heart that beats.
I have always loved what is “in between,” like the light coming through the leaves, and what one season brings to the other. My visual work is about this “change.” How colors change as the light changes with the seasons.

End of summer
Smoke is in the air
Quiet evenings by the fire
