Nature's Cycles: The fall equinox is another term for seasonal transition…it’s also a glorious time to celebrate our own unique transitions. As we watch the colors change, the leaves flutter to the ground as the trees slowly expose their branches, it quietly reminds us of the fleeting nature of all things. This painting is a representation of our seasonal transition, the transitions of the seeds we have planted, contributed, given, or taken. BIRCH TREE: Birch is symbolic of home, new beginnings, renewal & starting over. Used by many cultures as a symbol of protection, luck, gathering, shelter, and many other representations of home. FEATHER: Feathers are a symbol of giving thanks, appreciation, higher thought, and spiritual progression. Finding feathers on your path is also symbolic of having a lighter outlook on life or a particular situation. When we see feathers in our path it’s considered a message from above that we need to lighten up, not take things too seriously. LEAVES: Leaves in this painting represent transformation, reflection and personal development. Fall is a time for letting go and releasing things that have been a burden. As we watch leaves gently falling to the ground in the fall, we are reminded that nature's cycles are mirrored in our lives. Grab onto this present moment and consider what you have accomplished this year. What kinds of seeds have you planted in your life or the lives of others? What have you contributed to your world?
