The Autumn Equinox


The Nightjar

The weather's changing, still sunny but a slight chill in the air every now and then. I have to finally admit it, autumn is upon us!
To mark the occasion of the autumn equinox and to get us in the mood for those dark nights ahead, I'm changing the look of my blog for this magical time. I shall be using this new avatar too. Do you like her? The nightjar lives in her hair but she doesn't mind, in fact I suspect she's forgotten it's there!

Oh, she is pretty and spooky. I have a scorpion necklace I like to wear around Halloween...maybe I'll do deep purple makeup and see if I can find a spooky bird to live in my hair. And yes, I like her!

Kyra said...

Oh, I love it! I'm ready to dive into the Halloween spirit myself with my art!

Charlotte said...

Definitely suits the season. She looks how I wanted to look (as a teenager) and how I knew I did (really, secretly) inside my head.

Like her? I love her. The colours are a departure from your usual sunnier choice but there is something in the expression which is captivating.

Hello from Denmark! I just want to tell you that I adore your fine art, the colours, images and what it does to my soul! :)

Actually, I have this blog (alas, in Danish) where I write poetry from the heart, well actually, it's small stories but with a lot of poetry inspired by nature and by people. Today I have used one of your lovely drawings/paintings as illustration and I hope that's OK with you. Of course I have linked to your blog and I mention your name.

I trust you don't have a problem with this and I would love to spread the knowledge of your beautiful images and your universe. I am sorry that you will probably not be able to understand my words, but I paint with them as you do with colours ;)

Have a nice Sunday.

Lene Megan

Bonjour,
Je suis très heureuse de vous retrouver... J'étais, je me rends compte, restée longtemps absente !
Je suis très admirative de votre dernière oeuvre... C'est un grand hommage à Dame Automne...
J'adore toutes ces mèches de cheveux qui retombent sur son visage.

Un grand merci pour votre gentil message laissé sur mon blog.
Gros bisous

loving the art... isn't autumn amazing. In South Florida we do not have the yellowing of leaves, but the rain comes down and the smell of wet earth is refreshing.

Thankyou for such lovely comments about my new look blog and my nightjar lady! I'm certainly enjoying getting in the mood for autumn and then of course halloween. I feel some more autumnal inspired pictures coming on!xx

A side of your painting that at least for me, I've not seen before. Spooky but very cool. Love the bird in her hair.
