I felt it tonight. The first hint of the season changing, evolving. With the sun setting, I noticed a quiet whisper of coolness in the air and I smiled. The plants on my porch have stopped flowering and I know that pumpkins and Halloween decorations are in the works but I’m not quite ready to let go of my bright, endless summer. Yes, I have admitted my love for fall, but I wouldn’t mind holding onto the colors of summer awhile longer. Looks like my theory about using artwork to carry my summer along while I spring into fall is coming in handy.
Carrie Schmitt is vibrant, bright, warm, cheerful. And her art is a perfect reflection of her. She paints from a farm in Washington and her pieces reflect the joy and color in nature and life. These pieces add sunshine to your walls just by being there, no matter the season. The Fresh Cut 6 (pictured above) is a personal favorite because it makes me feel as though I am watching summer through a foggy lens, sitting in the beginning of fall and remembering summer. Not a bad place to be, don’t you think? Please visit Carrie Schmitt Art and Design for your very own piece of summer.
