We’re having a fall walk through Beaudry Park in the mid afternoon. My chocolate labrador, Abby’s senses are alive with anticipation.
The autumn air, the crunch of the leaves underfoot, the loamy smell of season’s change, the skittering of gathering birds – all tell a story.
There’s the hollow of the tree trunk inviting safe haven from wintery night.
But the colours are what take my breath away. They are intoxicating – browns, yellows, oranges, greens – beautiful colours that have inspired artists forever. I see amber, tourmaline, opal, citrine, sapphire, topaz, garnet and so many more. I’ll be remembering this walk as we design our next pieces using these gemstones. So thankful for the seasons.
