Cooler temps, watercolor palettes dripping with burnt sienna, golden ochres and cadmium hues of red and orange. Back roads, dirt roads, leaves, falling, quaking and swirling. Spiced pumpkin lattes for breakfast on those early dark mornings. Country back-road cafe's on streets with flower boxes and the American flags on doorsteps. It's not always about the vistas , it's about lines, color, light, textures and capturing the essence of the American Southwest in autumn. I'm not in a hurry so I'm giving myself... a lifetime to explore.
