It’s that time of year again, when the light begins to lesson and fade. Admittedly, this darkening of days is not my favorite. I much more prefer the bright energy of a full sun, which I realize is not possible to have all year round. So, to compensate, I try to create my own kind of internal sunshine…by creating.
Below is a bracelet that I made. I like how the golden cast of the afternoon light brings out the warm beauty of the beads.
As the light changes, the bracelet slightly changes…to this…
…and then to this.
The branches all around me are starting to strip down, revealing their strong brown color…limbs reaching outward and up…
…towards the sky of softening light.
Brown for branches and blue for sky…this combination is both soft and strong…and soothing. I have a feeling I’ll be using these natural, quiet colors a lot these next months. And you, what colors feel right to you now?
