I finished this piece during the energy of the autumn equinox when light and darkness are equal. It is a great turning point on the wheel as we move from harvest toward reflection and rest. A necessary pause before we renew our energy to begin again. My autumnal spirit is inspired by goldenrod with stone texture, layers of rust, salt for purity, fresh burnt plant ash for protection, earth pigments, rainwater and acrylic. It is cleansed with the smoke of freshly gathered prairie sage. May it inspire solace and rest. Canvas is 1.5 inch gallery wrapped and ready to hang.
