The Autumn

Oil on Canvas

8 x 16

The days are getting shorter, the leaves are changing, the weather is cooling and it’s my favorite time of year.  I don’t know if it because my birthday is in October but autumn has always been my season.  When I was little it meant shopping for new clothes, playing in the leaves, and trick or treating.  As a teenager it was football season, homecoming, and school parties.  The changing leaves meant the holidays were just around the corner and there was so much to look forward to.

As I get older, autumn seems to have even more significance.  I’m growing older and the season of my life is chaining once again.  I love the season that I’m in.  My child is no longer a child and my days are my much more my own.  I have the time to paint and pursue my personal dreams now.  I’m more sure of myself, more confident in who I am as a person.  I’m more at peace with myself and with life,  this is what comes from growing older.  I’m NOT over the hill by any means, I’m just not as young as I once was.

I’m looking forward to this time of my life, I think autumn may be the best season yet.
