Fall Wall Art “Jackman Fall Sunset”
Summer break has worn off, quickly. Loss of sunlight, drops in temperatures, changes in landscape colors, behavior of honey-bees, crop seasons passing…all contribute to the massive sense that summer 21 is indeed, lost to memory, now. Wood is yet to be ordered, though we have some stacked from last season that has dried through the summer. The bridge season is upon, the bridge between summer and….winter. Here is one of my favorite photos, ever…one I managed to take while visiting a friend in Jackman, Maine, after a series of terrific storms blew through the region…followed by clearing air and brilliant sun, at day’s end. I was just lucky to be on the spot, and am glad to present the image, “Jackman Fall Sunset,” here.
While visiting this truly beautiful, rustic landscape, we have a chance to walk about the property as often as we like– we drive the dirt roads, too, visiting some out-of-the-way, very remote campsites, some of them located on a particular island in a particular lake. Learning the history of some of the camps is always an interesting gig. Here is a photo of the same image in another setting, utilizing a different wall color to set off the image. Just a beautiful moment…is about all I can say, now.
Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe right now, this fall, instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Remember, too, the gift-giving season is just ahead. These are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the year moves toward a new beginning in 2022. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. In our post-pandemic period, what better way to celebrate than…with a fall art print…perhaps even a gift to a friend or relative.
Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above. Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff, an under-appreciated feature.
Check out several categories of original art and prints on my site; Instagram pix, photos, paintings, illustrations, limited editions, original painted works and Americana posters.
“Business Advice” for day: We enter a period of serious preparation…for winter. What a great reminder of the business world. The halcyon days of summer labor and summer profit are gone. We have no idea what to anticipate, but we can be sure the Farmer’s Almanac may be telling us to prepare for a long, cold, snowy, wintery blast. This urging will move us in the direction of doing whatever we can do to get safely through to spring, will it not? Over here, my list is suddenly long. This website needs attention for the season ahead. Personal matters over lap. Taking care of my two beehives looms as important. Family relations to support and nurture. Technology to learn and master, always. At a time when national life seems particularly ill, personal life makes its own firm demands. Plan ahead.
Here in mid-September, with summer now in the rear-view mirror a special thanks for your interest and support of my work. Let’s carry on!
