Today is the Autumnal Equinox! We enter into a time of balance between darkness and light. The seasons are changing, it's time for a new beginning. What things in your life will you let go of because they are no longer producing a positive result? What new hopes and dreams will you harvest in this new season?

This large landscape painting is truly a feast for the eyes! Warm color, light, texture, and lots of expressive brushwork. Layer upon layer of buttery oil paint builds up a surface that expresses the ripe abundance of the season.

"Equal dark, equal light
Flow in Circle, deep insight
Blessed Be, Blessed Be
The transformation of energy!
So it flows, out it goes
Three-fold back it shall be
Blessed Be, Blessed Be
The transformation of energy!"
- Night An'Fey, Transformation of Energy

"Smoke hangs like haze over harvested fields,
The gold of stubble, the brown of turned earth
And you walk under the red light of fall
The scent of fallen apples, the dust of threshed grain
The sharp, gentle chill of fall.
Here as we move into the shadows of autumn
The night that brings the morning of spring
Come to us, Lord of Harvest
Teach us to be thankful for the gifts you bring us ..."
