The face of autumn

Hi Everybody!

For Elke's  lovely 'landscapes of the soul' theme at
an A3 mixed media piece using the last of the paper leaves
made a few weeks back. I have been working on this piece
bit by bit in Art group each Monday. Her hair was made with strips of
transparent material, eyelash yarn and the paper leaves. I glued
it all together with silicone glue.






An I have more sunrise pictures, we have had some spectacular
ones lately:


Venus is still visible in the dawn sky:



I always wonder where the planes are off to:



 The wild geese on their way down to the Rhine:






Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  6. Your autumn inspired face is fabulous. I like the leaves and the fancy fibers you chose. They really look like autumn. Great AJJ entry and I can see why it took so long to finish.

    Beautiful early morning shots. It's amazing how lovely the dawn sky can be. Simply stunning photos, today, dear.

  13. Wise words. She certainly is practising what she believes. I love how the sun colors emphasize the words. As always you take beautiful photographs.

  14. The expression on your autumn lady's face makes her look very timid and shy to me... or many just humble. Very admirable for someone with such a vibrant head of "hair."

    Your sky photos are gorgeous, and they gave me an idea of my own. A gorgeous sunrise picture would make an awesome cover for the novel I'm editing now... and maybe a non-time sky cover for book II and a sunset for the third book of the trilogy. Cool huh? (Thanks for the idea!)

    Have a super weekend.
