Brilliant Colors

October Colors

This time of year is so beautiful with inspiring vibrant colors from nature.  Artists everywhere use this palette for images of autumn forests and harvest fields.

The above photo of a fall forest reminded me of this beautiful quilt designed and made by Jean Page, featured in Quilter's Newsletter Magazine,
Nov. 95

This is a vintage postcard dated November 28, 1912

Also, remember, that Halloween is a few days away.  Some literary references come to mind.

“Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubbles." 
 “By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.”

                                                                    The Three Witches
                                                                   William Shakespeare

“Listen to them – the children of the night.               Dracula
 What music they make!”                                     Bram Stoker

“Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,          
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore— While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a  tapping,       
    As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
     “’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
    Only this and nothing more.”
      “Quoth the raven, “ Nevermore”.”                The Raven
                                                                               E.A. Poe
