Fall '23 Abstract Nature Painting Series Release “Of September”

Updated: Oct 23, 2023

I've been working since July on a new body of work, and I can't wait to share it with you!


The new series is called "Of September." In my mind, September isn’t just a month of the year, it is a state of being. If "mud season" is nature at her worst, then September is nature at her best. The bounty of the summer reaches its peak, and every being seems to say this is it, let us live to our fullest before the cold days of winter arrive.


The signature color of this collection ("Golden Hour") is color I handmade from goldenrod blooms. Thousands of these tiny blooms explode each September across hillsides with a bright, cool yellow, beckoning pollinators for one last hurrah before the cold winds of fall arrive. The cool yellow serves as a refreshing reminder to enjoy the last hot days of September. I collected this plant with my children in tow--we brought bags of it home, boiled and strained it, and used some to dye our wool winter blanket a rich shade of yellow. When preserved, the pigment from goldenrod turns a warmer yellow, as if to acknowledge that in the days ahead, the memory of warmth is a much needed gift. Some of this handmade pigment is included in each piece in the collection. My hope is that adding a contemporary abstract nature painting from this collection to your home will help you tap into the memory of these beautiful fall blooms too.


September is all the best parts, and sometimes, we need to hold on to those memories in the bleak days of winter. Relationships to self, relationships to others, and relationships to our environment all go through seasons, as the world does. In the colder days, when things are a bit more difficult, the memory of September keeps us going when we need it most. This collection is a reminder to keep tending the hearth of our hearts and to keep putting in the work, even though we may feel far from our best days. 


The series will launch to collectors (anyone signed up for emails) on November 3 at 10am EST, and be released to the public on November 4 at 10am EST. In the past collections have sold out within the first 24 hours, so make sure you're signed up to get first access to your favorite original works!


Deep in December, it’s nice to remember

Although you know the snow will follow

Deep in December it’s nice to remember

The fire of September that made us mellow,

Deep in December our hearts should remember

And follow follow follow


"Try to Remember," by The Brothers Four


As always, thank you for your support, company, and encouragement. I hope you enjoy the collection as much as I have enjoyed bringing it to you.
