"shadowfeet & other things floating" by annton beate schmidt 

This week I have been kindly invited to the drawing challenge Fall, hosted by Ariane Reichardt. And before heading directly into the next season, before Berlin gets covered in freezing cold and a lot of grey, I've gladly taken the invitation. Here is a little collection of my personal Fall; from drawings to heartwarming food and long walks through the woods. Can you spot me in the middle of all those roots, branches and mushrooms? While you are looking closer, I am going back to work on that calendar and will see you tomorrow, for another Queen of Colors. Sweet dreams, lovelies.

  4. The juxtaposition of a sleeping you, with roots and mushrooms and dreams and native folk and flowers is a wonderful visual journey for me. Just so lovely. The scene bespeaks silence. *smiles* Norma, x

  7. Ja, schlafen...das ist das, was man im Herbst am liebsten tun möchte, sich in den Winterschlaf begeben und auf den Frühling warten...und ja, es ist tatsächlich so, indem man der Natur beim sich-verändern, beim sich-verabschieden zuschaut, wird man selbst sehr eins mit ihr.
