Most of you probably know by now Autumn is my most favourite season by far. I enjoy strolling through the forest beneath those magnificent threatening skies, while listening to the rustling of the beautiful coloured leaves that soon will fall and breathing in the scent of moist and mushrooms. It is the season I engage in with every sense of my body.
Last year, to celebrate, I made a Son’s Popkes artwork set in Autumn and this year I fantasized about a special picture like the one I made for Summer.
Yesterday I finally had the change to go to a park nearby and collect leaves in all my favourite colours. While gathering some chestnuts, I felt if someone was watching me, but I didn’t see anybody. But later, when I looked up into the trees to see if there were fresh chestnuts still there, I saw this gorgeous big crow sitting right above me on a branch, curiously looking at me. ‘Ah’, I said to him, ‘I thought I felt somebody watching me, it was you!’
Back home I arranged the leaves I collected and took the picture. Enjoy Autumn everybody, it is over before you know it.
The pattern I am currently working on is of an owl. It took me a while to create a sweet looking face (the first heads I came up with looked rather unpleasant and mean) and that is why I wasn’t able to post a sketch already. To be continued….

…and I meant to say how much I love your autumn popkes picture:-) . You’re right, the glory of autumn is fleeting so we have to go out and enjoy it at every opportunity. This year is particularly good in the UK!
Hi Chris! How lovely to hear from you :). Yes, the owl, last week I finally managed to create a sweet face. No movable head I think.
I’m glad you’re having a beautiful autumn in the UK, in the NL it’s good too. Very good weather, except this week….
Have a lovely week! X
