‘Notice that Autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature’ Friedrich Nietzsche
I love how fallen leaves accentuate individual leaf shapes - the edges curl up elegantly as they gather in beautiful heaps that crunch as you walk through them.
I love the filtered light through the canopy of leaves & how a breeze, however light, brings them tumbling down - gently.
I have got out early on my day off to wander in the local woods & to just breath in the beauty of Autumn.
Autumn is a time beloved by many of our favourite artists - Van Gogh's Landscape with four trees is a favourite, the colours & trees represent Autumn well.
My students have used David Hockney’s stunning ‘Woldgate woods’ as an Autumn art inspiration before, I think we need to revisit this beautiful art

I hope you are enjoying Autumn wherever you are, get out & jump in those leaves. Do you have a favourite Autumn quote?
Thank you for your company,
