The Glories of Fall
Fall has ushered in and yellows, burnt oranges, and deep reds are creeping over the trees day by day like slow, flickering flames. The cool nights and the smell of wood burning fireplaces are always relaxing to me as the daylight hours wane earlier each day. I’ve always had a great love of fall – hearing the crunch of the leaves beneath my feet, feeling the crisp dry air on my skin, and seeing the combines harvesting the dry, golden corn stalks in the sunset.
As the days get colder and the darkness comes earlier, we find ourselves staying in a little more, biking a little less, and gearing up to do more “indoor” projects. Eric will again bring out his brushes, acrylics and canvasses, while I focus on my crafts, which typically vary by day from sewing, photography, scrapbooking, creating home décor, etc.
Eric is currently working on a commission piece for friends of ours – they own a beautiful property north of Lincoln and want a landscape portrait of it. We’ve also brainstormed quite a few ideas for new paintings so he can stock back up on works – he has sold about half of his paintings since this journey began in March! He is still currently displaying his art at both the Noyes Gallery in Lincoln and at the Glacial Till Tasting Room gallery in Ashland, NE, so we’d like to keep the momentum going!
Eric will be participating in the Noyes Gallery, Intimate with the Artist event on Friday, November 21st (2014) from 6:00-9:00 PM along with several other artists. He’ll be showcasing some of his new works, so come on down to meet the artist himself.
And until the snow flies, you’ll find us at the galleries, out enjoying the glories of fall, or setting up to get those projects going.
