one week later

This is what I see in the morning. If you've been watching the woods behind my house with me, you know what they looked like a week ago. The lush, vibrant leaves are gone and in their place, a whole different (and I think, more interesting) view. There is something about this spare, monochromatic scene that I find more exciting than the woods at any other time of year. Ironic, since I hate the cold weather. It is this view that speaks most loudly to my heart - and capturing its essence continues to elude me - although I work at it constantly. Is there something you keep trying to capture without doing it photographically? A scene? A concept? An image? A feeling? Or have you succeeded and moved on? I spent today in the studio, dyeing scarves. Most of them have only the color and are waiting to be printed. However, I did finish one --or at least it is finished for the time being. Deconstructed and dye painted, it makes me think of old wall. Tomorrow, I hope to print on the scarves I dyed today.

ah Rayna, the trees behind your house. Yes, that fleeting bit of late Autumn, stark, subtle (is that a contradiction?), the elusive quality of a particular time in the year.
thanks.laura
