Autumn Splendor - Falling Leaves

Autumn Splendor - Falling Leaves
Originally uploaded by ** Robyn **.

Where do you get inspiration from? I have a very talented friend who is a never ending stream of new ideas. Blue is in a constant flow of creativity and I just get sucked along in the wake as I gasp in awe of the talent.

At the moment Blue is learning Japanese calligraphy as a branch of an intense interest in Zen Buddhism. The beautiful pieces of brushed calligraphy that are appearing regularly on the Bluesky Studio web site have an enormous sense of calm and serenity about them. They come, coincidentally, just shortly after The Poet and I saw an exhibition of Zen brush painting at the Art Gallery of NSW.

A recent ATC challenge was one of those out-of-Aussie-seasons seasons challenges. I needed three cards to depict Autumn Spendor at a time when the tree in my garden is bursting with the green of spring. The card in this picture was the first of the set. I wasn't sure when the idea came from until I turned back to Bluesky Studio and the calligraphy.

I am so lucky to have such a talented friend!
