I sit looking out my window at the sunshine washing over rapidly changing leaves. The crabapple tree outside my townhouse is loaded with red apples, yellow and orange leaves, and a few patches of green foliage that steadfastly refuse to change colour. It can mean only one thing: fall is here!

I love when the seasons change. Usually at that point, I have become a little tired of whatever season we are coming out of and am ready for something new. Each year, Fall brings a vibrancy of colour, warm drinks, and long coats.

For those seeking to create art these days, the season change can bring a plethora of inspiration. I thought I would give you a few jumpstarts to get you moving:

“Great art picks up where nature ends.”
-Marc Chagall

“Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye…it also includes the inner pictures of the soul.”
-Edvard Munch

“No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.”
-Oscar Wilde

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
-Leonardo da Vinci

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”
-Scott Adams

So this week, go out and paint! Sit in a coffee shop with a pumpkin spice latte and write. Put on some leg warmers and dance. Just Go! Do! Art!

Blessings,
