Crisp crunchy leaves, late afternoon and evening dramatic thunderstorms, cool bright starry nights and the light…! Ah…the autumn light tickles my thoughts and fuels my love of the mountains. I feel such a pull to be outdoors taking in all the adventure I can as the days grow shorter, but my studio work is equally captivating. Gold leaf is adding a new dimension of feeling, playful light and interesting surface. The soft glowing gold niche magically opens the insides even further – as if glimpsing the soul within.
