Autumn Queen

My corner of the world has had an unusually gorgeous autumn this year, thanks to the boon of a blazing Indian summer. As the frosts have started creeping in, I have noticed the trees and plants around me have literally been on fire with the most stunning colours. I tried to capture some of it on my phone...

The inspiration has been immense - not sure if I would have thought of pairing acid yellow and black with a deep rust red - and those delicious, rich purples and pinks set off with cool lime greens and dusty, ashy tones - sumptuous! 

These ideas all came together in a new piece I've called Autumn Queen:

If Autumn Queen strikes a chord with you, I have made prints available in the shop here. 

Meanwhile, hope you are enjoying the festive sparkle that is gathering pace and are not getting too stressed...!
