Hello! I'm Jane, visiting from Ill Seen, Ill Said. And I'm delighted to be blogging for Joanna while she's away. While she's gone in search of warmer climes, I'm embracing my favourite season here in Canada...
Painting: The Solemn Land (1921) by JEH MacDonald
Fall in Canada would turn anybody into a believer. I have to confess, in extremes I find my adopted province somewhat barren. But in autumn, it shimmers. The Group of Seven artists felt it too - you can see how autumn lifts their palette up from their trademark murk. This season sweeps Ontario with honeyed glow, the air crisp and clear.
Inspired by their palette, I've assembled some of my favourite Fall inspiration. Readers of my blog will know I'm not known for a strong love of colour, but for the last two seasons, colour has been creeping up on me. Hopefully, I can hold on to some of that golden shimmer during the long winter ahead.
Thanks for having me Joanna! - Jane - Ill Seen, Ill Said
